From 1984 leading researcher in ITEP.
From 1996 to 2000 professor
professor at TAC, Copenhagen, Denmark.
From January 2000 to 2006 Dirigente di ricerca INFN, Sezione di Ferrara.
From 2006 professor at the University of Ferrara.

Teaching experience: classes on field theory, quantum mechanics
and weak interactions at MPTI during 1964-1967. A large number
of lectures on elementary particle and cosmology in ITEP winter
schools as well as in those of the Leningrad Institute of Nuclear
Physics and Moscow Institute of Nuclear Research during last 30
years. Classes on classical mechanics and electrodynamics in
Univ. of Michigan. Lectures on particle physics and cosmology in
University of Valencia. Lectures on Cosmology of the Early Universe
in the University of Copenhagen and in Scuola Normale in Pisa. Mini-course "Physics of them Early Universe” in Center for Astrophysics at the Instituto Superior Tecnico, Universidade
Tecnica de Lisboa, May-June 1998 for CENTRA researcher's, undergraduate and graduate students. Series of lectures on Neutrino
Cosmology in University of Dortmund, May 1998, within "Graduirtencolleg". Continuous lecture courses on Cosmology and
Gweneral Relativity in the University of Ferrara.

Research activity: Cosmology and astrophysics, gauge theories,
field theory including quantum gravity, cosmology of the early
Universe, in particular baryogenesis and creation of antimatter,
cosmological implications of neutrino, neutrino kinetics and
oscillations, generation of magnetic fields, universe reheating
after inflation, cosmological constant, and problems of dark
matter and dark energy, production of particles by external
fields, physics of cosmic microwave background, its spectral
and statistical properties.

Publications in these fields include more than 200 titles Among
them there are several review papers published in Reviews of
Modern Physics, Physics Reports, Sov. Phys. Uspekhi, Surveys
in High Energy Physics, and books "Kosmologiya Rannei Vselennoi”
("Cosmology of the early Universe"), MGU Publishers, Moscow, 1988
and "Basics of Modern Cosmology", Edition Frontier, Paris, 1990.

Main scientific results:

1. Discovery that the chiral anomaly leads to a scalar massless
pole 1/q^2 in scattering amplitudes and to chiral symmetry breakdown.

2. Generalization of the Froissart theorem for the case of massless
neutrino exchange.

3. Derivation of the cosmological limit on heavy neutrino mass.

4. A proof that conformal anomaly leads to production of photons
in cosmological background. Application of this mechanism to the
problem of generation of the large scale cosmic magnetic fields.

5. First work on implication of neutrino oscillations on big bang
nucleosynthesis. Derivation of quantum kinetic equation for neutrino
density matrix in thermal background.

6. A suggestion of the adjustment mechanism for vacuum energy
(cosmological constant). The idea that at the late stage of the
universe evolution the cosmological energy density may be
dominated by a new form of energy, later discovered as dark energy.

7. First non-perturbative calculations of particle production by
the inflaton field (universe reheating). A possibility of parametric
resonance excitation.

8. Non-equilibrium kinetics of elementary particles in cosmological
plasma with application to baryogenesis and neutrino physics.
Numerical and analytical methods developed.

Invited speaker at many international conferences and member of
Scientific Advisory and Organization Committees.

Awards:
1. 1973, Lenin Komsomol Award given to young scientists for the best work in physics in Soviet Union.
2. 1996, Landau-Weizmann Award for theoretical physics, by the Weizmann Institute.
