Expert in Density Functional Theory calculations of electronic properties of solids, spin-orbit coupling, magnetism, optics and transport. Recent research interests are focused on a search of novel two-dimensional materials and detailed study of their van der Waals hybrids in order to propose new functional materials utilizing proximity effects.

As research assistant he has been currently responsible for implementation of the Density Functional Theory techniques of electronic structure calculations in solids at the Department within reintegration grant scheme of Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of Slovak Republic. The goal has been to bridge experimental studies of electronic structure, superconductivity, magnetism in low dimensional systems and theoretical first-principles calculations techniques.
