About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Numerical Mathematics at Charles University in Prague, and a member of the MathMAC (University center for mathematical modeling, applied analysis and computational mathematics) project.

Research Interests


PRIMUS 22/SCI/014: September 2022 – August 2025
Starting September 2022 I will be Principal Investigator on the PRIMUS project "Agglomeration and refinement of polytopic meshes for virtual element and discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods". We are currently looking for two Ph.D. students and one postdoc for this project. See the project webpage for more details.
