About me

I am currently a Software Engineer at Codeplay in Edinburgh, UK.

Previously I was an Intern C++ Programmer at Bohemia Interactive Simulations in Prague.

I have graduated with an MSc by Research in Computer Science at University of Warwick. My supervisor was Dan Král'. Before that, I got an undergraduate degree at Charles University in Prague.

My (usually slightly out of date) CV can be found here.

Research interests

My Bachelor thesis was focused on the area of combinatorial geometry. In particular, I dealt with combinatorial properties of spheres and zero sets of real polynomials and studied assumptions needed to formulate Helly-type theorems on such sets.

My research in Warwick mainly included the following:

My Master thesis was concerned with the theory of dense graph limits. A graphon is an analytic object representing a convergent sequence of large graphs. I studied finitely forcible graphons, which are graphons uniquely determined by finitely many subgraph densities. I gave a new construction generalizing a previous result.
