He then focused on quantum information processing during his next postdoctoral engagement at the Weizmanna Institute in Israel. He also worked at the University of Erlangen and at Texas A & M University at College Station.

After returning to his home faculty, he has been focusing his research mainly on quantum information processing. However, he is interested in many other areas of physics, including the thermodynamics of black holes. According to the Web of Science database he has published 81 papers with 1800 citations. His h-index is 23. His educational activity at the Faculty is also significant, he teaches mainly Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics, vibrations and waves, Scientific Communication, Atomic Optics and other subjects.
