Experience: My field of interest is connected with the theory of sets and set -theoretic topology and was greatly influenced by my contacts with the Prague School and with the Moscow School. In the academic year 1975-1976 I was invited to carry out research at the Lomonosov University in Moscow, at the Faculty of the Academician P.S. Alexandroff. My papers are inspired by problems known in the theory of Boolean algebras, however, the methods used lie within the scope of general topology and set theory and infinitary combinatorics. I also give lectures to students at the Institute of Mathematics on mathematical analysis, topology, logic and supervise the preparation of their Master-theses as well as the PhD-theses. Several times I hold a position of visiting professor (for one month or more): University of Messina (1991, with a grant of  Conciglio Nazionale della Ricerche), University of Catania (1992, with a grant of CNR), Free University of Berlin (1992, with a grant of DAAD), Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1995).
