* Research interests:
Crystal structure of materials for energy storage;
Influence of environmental fac
tors (temperature, pressure) on the nuclear and magnetic structure of condenced matter;
Multidetector powder diffractometers - construction, operation and data treatment;
Structure - property relationship for complex oxides;
Methods and tools for structure determination from powders;

And last, like a hobby: Theoretical (both semiclassical and ab-initio) simulations of condensed matter.

* Research techniques:
  Anything worth doing is worth doing properly.  Usually I constructed the scientific programme to run computational, theoretical and experimental  techniques in parralel. Experimental studies are based mainly on the diffraction technique using X-ray, synchrotron radiation (HASYLAB@DESY, B2, F1) and neutrons (ILL, D2B, D20, SALSA; FRM-II, SPODI, PUMA, STRESSPEC, ISIS: HRPD, GEM).
Computational techniques applied were lattice energy, lattice dynamics and molecular dynamics simulations.
