Anisotropic and inhomogeneous cosmological models: explaining the isotropy of the universe, primordial black hole formation, cosmological gravity waves, statistical and pattern recognition measures of galaxy clustering.
Cosmological aspects of gravitation theories: higher-order lagrangian theories of gravity, scalar-tensor gravity theories, implications for inflation, chaotic behaviour in the general solutions of general relativity and other gravity theories, observational restrictions on the possible variation of 'constants' of Nature.
Aspects of the history and philosophy of science touching upon developments in astronomy, cosmology, fundamental physics and mathematics.
