Hi! Welcome to my personal webpage. I am a European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Patrick Keeling at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. I did my PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology and Genetics (joint PhD program of the University of South Bohemia and Institute of Parasitology, Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic) under the supervision of John McCutcheon (University of Montana, USA).

Apart from science, I enjoy traveling, hiking, backpacking, back-country skiing (yes, anything outdoors), homebrewing, all types of maps, surreal humor and literary nonsense, and photography.
