The focus of research work has been in complex dynamical systems and their applications in quantum metamaterials. The methods are theoretical and computational. The researchers introduced the idea of self-induced transparency in quantum metamaterials, found new nonlinear systems where Parity-Time symmetry plays an important role, introduced and investigated systems with flat bands and focused on the role of dynamical chimeras in superconducting metamaterials. The scientists published, among others, a review article in Physics Report on superconducting metamaterials. In
