Interests

My research interest is focused on forest ecology with emphasis on species niche modelling, temporal vegetation dynamics and forest microclimate. Besides, I participate on research of vegetation dynamics under extreme conditions of their upper elevation limit in Himalaya.

Employment

2010 – present: research assistant at Institute of Botany, The Czech Academy of Sciences, Průhonice, Czech Republic

Education

2006 – 2011  Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science in Prague, Dept. of Geobotany, Czech Republic. MSc in Botany.

2011 – present: PhD study in Botany, Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science in Prague, Czech Republic.
