Leading scientist's research interests: Geophysics, meteorology, oceanology (physical concepts of laws of resistance and heat/mass exchange of the planetary boundary layer, problems of energy of turbulence in the setting of stable stratification, diagnostic and forecasting equations of the height of the planetary boundary layer

Quote by the head of the laboratory: There is great interest in Russian mega-grants from abroad and it is constantly growing. Over a relatively short period of time of implementation of the program it has already become well-known in Europe. Growth of the number of European colleagues ready to act as leading scientists – supervisors of mega-grants is obviously growing.
