My main scientific interest is physics of all types of cosmic dust (interplanetary, interstellar, circumstellar dust, planetary aerosols) and small bodies in Solar system (comets, asteroids, satellites of planets, Kuiper-Belt objects).

I use both remote sensing and in-situ methods to study these objects focusing on spectrophotometry and polarimetry. I have participated in development of the astronomical and space instrumentation, laboratory and computer simulations, and theory development in light scattering by particles and surfaces.

I am the manager of the Small Bodies Node of the NASA Planetary Data System and work on archiving the data obtained at space-mission and ground-based observations of comets, asteroids and interplanetary (zodiacal) dust.

I am the editor and manager of the online Light-Scattering Newsletter http://www.astro.ufl.edu/~elsnews
