I was born in Decin (Děčín,
Tetschen) in the north-west of Czechoslovakia
in 1966. Until my 18 we lived in Louny
and since my studies on Charles University
(Faculty of Mathematics and Physics,
1984-89) I live mostly in Prague.
After an army intermezzo in 1989/90
(9 months) I entered the graduate program in mathematics on Charles
University in 1991 and got Ph.D. in 1995 under supervision of J.
In 1994 I spent one year in the US as a teaching assistant in
Arizona State University (Tempe). In 1997/98 I visited for one year
Forschungsinstitut für Diskrete Mathematik in Bonn (Alexander von
Humboldt Stiftung fellowship).
From 1995 I am employed in KAM (Katedra aplikované matematiky,
Department of Applied Mathematics) on my alma mater, first as an
assistant professor (odborný asistent) and since 2004 as an associate
professor (docent). Since 2000 I
work also in ITI (Institut
teoretické informatiky, Institute for Theoretical Computer Science).
