Expert has been involved for the last ten years in basic research of behaviour and properties of water solutions. The purpose of this research is the elucidation of the basic properties of water - its intrinsic structure - that, contrary to popular and even scientificall opinion, is not really known yet. This research evolves from dealing with chiral molecules, proved by his work to be against existing dogma, not identical in properties. This work proved that water has chiralic preferences and probably long range structures. Furthermore, several other molecules were developed and investigated- regarding its interactions with water.

Earlier in his career, Expert dealt with electrochemistry in water. Throughout his entire career, Expert has been working both in basic research and in applied projects as an organic industrial chemist, mateials researcher, etc. He also was involved in biological projects, among them a published paper on DNA. Together, the deep understanding of water and solutions and the broad view acquired by the variety of themes Expert was involved, has resulted in a unique expertise and consulting profile.

Expert is an independent consultant, involved in various projects, alongside his scientific work.

Expert's current work is in the field of physical chemistry: chirality and water stucture. Expert worked both in the basic research and applied areas, bringing with him different points of view to the respective areas, obtaining original and resourceful solutions. Expert worked as an industrial chemist covering all aspects of the industrial factory (bromine organic chemistry) including analytical work, new process development, pilot direction and even building glass constructions. Later on various projects, including materials research of alumina and silica from coal ash, battery research electrochemistry of superconductors etc., broadened Expert's view amd expertise areas.
Expert provides original and unique solutions, and he feels at home in all aspects of applied chemistry.
