As Professor of Astrophysics (Chair) at Göteborg University, I am conducting research on a wide range of
subjects: black holes, quasars, neutron stars, gamma ray bursts, gravitational radiation, quantum gravity, accretion discs. My research
deals with the extreme conditions of curvature, compactness, density, temperature and strength of gravity typical for high energy
astronomical objects. These conditions often reflect fundamental laws of Nature and cannot be even approached in laboratories on Earth.
My courses are given in English. I try to make elementary courses interesting and enjoyable also for students with little mathematical background. Advanced courses cover black hole physics, cosmology, and high-energy phenomena in stars and accretion disks.
