Brief Description of Main Research: My recent scientific activities are concerned mainly with x-ray absorption spectroscopy of materials containing transition-metal ions (crystals, solutions, crystalline and amorphous thin films, glasses and gels). The main research topics are related to phase transitions, local structural distortions, vibrational dynamics and localisation processes. Besides I study the sensitivity of the x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) to high-order atom-atom correlation functions, and in this connection I am directly involved in the theoretical analysis of experimental data with the use of ab initio multiple-scattering approach. I am the author of the original EXAFS data analysis software package EDA, the original approximated method for performing the MS calculations of  XAFS and experimental data collection interface for laboratory EXAFS-spectrometer at the institute. At present moment, the EDA package is used in about 20 laboratories all around the world from Japan to USA and is included in the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) software distribution list.
