Attila Csótó teaches nuclear physics and nuclear- and particle astrophysics.

He has worked on the structure and reactions of nuclei far from stability, and discovered the nuclear quantum amplification phenomenon. He calculated the reaction rates for several solar nuclear reactions, which determine the solar neutrino fluxes. He showed that the synthesis of carbon and oxygen is extremely fine-tuned in the Universe, and gave constraints on the basic forces of Nature. He studied the effects of temporally varying fundamental constants on nucleosynthesis in the Universe.

He worked at the Institute of Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, at Caltech and Michigan State University, and at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
