General research interests:

a) Laboratory and theoretical molecular spectroscopy of atmospheric and astrophysical interest. b) Use of available spectroscopic information to construct databases that aid research in diverse areas of science and industry. c) Development of the tools for enhancing data accessibility and effectiveness of scientific collaborations in the field of molecular spectroscopy.

Complete list of my publications devoted to the aforementioned topics can be found here.

I am the director of the HITRAN spectroscopic database project and the majority of my research work concentrates on maintenance and further development of this database. HITRAN and its sister database HITEMP are widely used in atmospheric and astrophysical applications as well as in medicine, engineering and many other fields.
