Work Experience

Since 2020 Research Scientist,Department of Geochemistry, Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics of the Czech Academy of Sciences
2015-2019 Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Geochemistry, Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics of the Czech Academy of Sciences


Since August, 2021 Postdoctoral Fellowship at Platform of Inter/Transdisciplinary Energy Research, Kyushu university (Japan) under the "JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Research in Japan (Short-term)” program with research title “CO2 capture and H2 storage using macro-meso-microporous nitrogen doped carbons”

Scientific Field and Expertise

• Characterization of porous structure of materials using gas sorption analyses, mercury intrusion porosimetry and helium pycnometery
• Developing and synthesis of highly porous carbon-based adsorbent materials
• Investigation of the ability of carbon materials to capture air pollutants, such as CO2, CH4 and volatile organic compounds
• Evaluation of selectivity, kinetics and isosteric heats of sorption process
• Synthesis and characterization of oxide-based glasses with determined properties

Texture Analysis Methods: Gravimetric and Volumetric sorption analyses, Mercury porosimetry, Helium pycnometery
Thermal Analysis Methods: Differential thermal analysis (DTA), Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Thermodilatometry (TD), Hot-stage microscopy
Other methods frequently used in my work: Raman spectroscopy, Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)
