Hi everyone! Welcome to my webpage -- my name is Tereza,  I was born in Czech Republic and I am ESO faculty astronomer working in the Observing Programmes Office (OPO) in Garchig, Germany. 

 My research focuses on understanding how stars form in different environments and if we can learn about physics of star formation happening on small (sub-pc) scales from observing galaxy-wide stellar populations. I use photometric and spectroscopic data (VLT/VST) and Gaia data to study nearby star forming regions. To investigate galaxies I have been using MUSE/VLT data and have taken the advantage of having theoretical expertise with hydrodynamical and Nbody modelling. 

My PhD is from the University of Bonn, thoughI had the privilege to be an ESO student in Garching (2017-2019).  For the last year of my PhD I got an amazing opportunity to be the first ever student at the GRANTECAN/GTC telescope (the biggest optical telescope in the world) and to receive training for a  support astronomer! Before joining ESO in February 2022, I was working at ESTEC as ESA Research Fellow.
