I’m the graduate of Albertov geography. I started my study in 2014 and finished in the regular five years. After the study I took a year off and travelled literally around the world, doing manual jobs and discovering places that every geographer would love to visit. Now, I feel even most enthusiastic to return “home” for Ph.D. My doctoral project is going to continue in the topic of Prague’s suburbanisation, that I was investigating in my bachelor and diploma projects. More specifically, I focus upon various forms of structuration of the suburban space, time and society.

To make everything more complicated, I have a second job which is the political NGO Milion Chvilek. I manage the team as the vice-president. Hopefully, there will be no need of my support after next year’s elections and I can return to Albertov on full time.
