Keywords: quantum chemistry, spectroscopy, active pharmaceutical ingrediences of drugs, chemopreventants, carcinogens, spatial distributions,  analysis, time series, artificial neural networks

At the beginning of my scientific career, I decided on the interdisciplinary (multidisciplinary) nature of my research and I have been following this direction consistently. The mainstream of my research is the aspect of “structure-dynamics-biological activity” of active pharmaceutical substances included in drugs, chemopreventants and carcinogens.

The applied research methods include

  •  experimental techniques (NQR, NMR, NQR-NMR, EPR, DSC, DTA, IR and X-ray/TLS)
  • quantum chemistry computational methods including ab initio, Density Functional Theory (DFT),
  • quantum chemistry approaches : Quantum Theory of Atoms in Molecules (QTAIM), 3D Hirshfeld Surfaces (3D HS), RDS, CLP,
  • molecular docking (MD),
  • molecular dynamics simulations (MDS).

In parallel, I am developing multidisciplinary research in the field of biophysics / meteorology / climatology / astronomy / environmental protection / computer science / mathematics. I analyze and predict UV index maps on a global scale using time series and artificial intelligence methods (artificial neural networks).
