I am a seismologist at the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.
My main focus is on the active seismic zones in the Western Carpathians.
I am responsible for building and maintaining an extension of the local seismic network MKnet.
My research deals with data analysis, focused on moment tensor inversion, developing of seismic models and seismic events location.
