His main fields of interest are the physics of the earth's atmosphere, astronomy of minor bodies and space science. His scientific activity mainly concerns radar observation of meteors, the phenomena connected with their interaction with the atmosphere, and study of the wind structure (prevailing components: gravity, tidal and planetary waves) in the mesosphere and in the lower troposphere of the polar regions (katabatic winds).
