Forschung

Alexei A. Starobinsky is presently Major Research Scientist at the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in Moscow, Russia. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics. Starobinsky is one of the world leaders in gravity and cosmology.

His name is related to two major discoveries. In 1973 he calculated emission of particles from the rotating black hole, and in 1979 he developed the first realistic theory of cosmological inflation, which is now the corner stone of cosmology. There are many other seminal scientific achievements of Starobinsky, which include particle creation in cosmology, generation of adiabatic perturbations during inflation, f (R) models of dark energy, etc.

From 1999 to 2003 Starobinsky was the Deputy Director of the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics. He is an active member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Alexei A. Starobinsky is the editor of eight physical journals. Starobinsky is a recipient of the Tomalla Prize for extraordinary contributions to General Relativity and Gravity from the Tomalla Foundation for Gravity Research, Switzerland.
