About Me

I'm a third-year bachelor's degree student of general computer science at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University.

I currently work at the Computer Science Institute of Charles University with Pavel Veselý and Karel Břinda on bioinformatics research projects related to representing k-mer sets.

Previously, I interned at DIMACS at Rutgers University, in Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team at Google in Munich and in the CIMRA research group at the University of West Bohemia.

Alongside my studies and research, I am an organizer of Korespondenční Seminář z Programování, a monthly competition in computer science for high school students. I also organize the Czech Olympiad in Informatics.

Co-founder of AiAiEyes, a mobile application to help the visually impaired to distinguish specific everyday objects. In past, I developed games on Android in the Whizzmot group.

Although my primary domain is theoretical computer science, my academic interests range from mathematics, computer science and artificial intelligence to software engineering, site reliability engineering and applied fields such as bioinformatics, genomics, finance and physics.

My personal interests are also broad, from various sports to playing the clarinet and reading. With a friend we've been writing a fantasy book Mocnější než bohové (in Czech).
