  • Magnetic reconnection
  • Magnetogenesis and dynamo
  • Plasma equilibration and self-organization
  • Relativistic wave-particle interactions
  • Collective beam instabilities

These are relevant to planetary magnetospheres, solar wind and corona, stellar dynamos, accretion disks and jets, interstellar medium, thermonuclear fusion, and particle accelerators. I mainly do analytical and numerical work, but I always try to compare my results with experiments and observations.
