He works, among other topics, on the problem of the nature of dark matter.
He proposed in 1998 that dark matter halos were ultralight scalar fields, which condensed to
form large Bose-Einstein condensates. This model is now one of the best accepted models
of dark matter in the literature, behave very similarly to the halos of real galaxies.
He founded the first group in the world to systematically study this model.
