About Me

I am an expert in Landslide processes and Landslide Risk Reduction. I act as an editor for the journals Acta Geodynamica et Geomaterialia and Geoenvironmental Disasters and I am doing reviews for the journals Landslides, Geomorphology, NHESS, Water, Natural Hazards, Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment, Journal of Mountain Science, Remote Sensing, Science of the Total Environment or Transportation Geotechnics. I also participate in teaching at the Charles University in Prague in courses on Natural Hazards and Risks and Dynamic Engineering Geology and I supervise bachelor, master, and doctoral theses in Geography and Cartography, Physical Geography, Geotechnologies, and Applied Geology. Since 2020 I have started teaching my own lecture on Monitoring of Geodynamic Processes at the University of Ostrava, Czechia. I am an expert witness named by the Minister of Justice of the Czech Republic with specialisation in Engineering Geology, Geomorphology, Stability of Slopes and Rock Walls.
