Liliya is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Astronomy at Univesity of Minnesota, US. Her main research interests are the role of gravity in cosmology (where she uses gravitational lensing and classical dynamics to study the mass distribution in the Universe, from sub-galactic to super-cluster scales), to constrain cosmological parameters, and to elucidate the nature of dark matter and dark energy.
