Brief description of main research:

I am working in the area of experimental nuclear spectroscopy. My main scientific interests are devoted to the investigation of nuclear structure in nuclear reactions in the mass region A=140-194. I has participated in developing of the experimental equipment for the nuclear structure investigation in the nuclear reactions at the Latvian nuclear reactor as well as in investigation of more than 20 nuclei in co-operation with many laboratories in Europe and USA. Since 1986 we are active in the field of application of some nuclear spectroscopic methods to ecological problems. During the last years our laboratory have performed measurements for the determination of radionuclide concentration in aerosols, precipitation, water and sediments in Latvia.
