  Everything is both simpler
than we can imagine,
and more complicated
that we can conceive.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


research fellow at COBRA working group at institute of computer science (ICS) working on problems concerning complex networks with regard to reliable construction as well as emergence of stuctural phenomena. The corresponding application domains includes those in neurological research or climatology. Another reseach domain is analysis algebraic properties of graphs including theory of symmetric relational structures and optimization with effort to interval artithmetic both realized partially at Computer Science Institute of Charles University (IUUK) and within Interval Methods Group at Department of Applied mathematics (KAM) at Charles University in Prague. I also teach several courses at mentioned university, see particular section.
