Main interests: numerical hydrodynamics simulations of protostellar disk formation in the primordial and local Universe, formation of giant planets and brown dwarfs via disk gravitational fragmentation, accretion and luminosity bursts in young protostars.
1. Formation and evolution of protostellar disks at high redshifts and around primordial protostars

2. The early stages of star and disk formation, properties of the first hydrostatic cores, comparison with observations.
3.  Formation of giant planets and brown dwarfs via disk gravitational fragmentation.
4. Effect of magnetic fields on the evolution of protostellar disks.
5. Observational manifestations of protostellar accretion, measurements of protostellar disk masses.
PhD students: Vardan Elbakyan, Southern Federal University, Russia.
