In 2019, I finished my PhD studies of the Ecosystem biology at the Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. Since 2009 I have been working at the Department of Fish and Zooplankton Ecology (FishEcU) at the Institute of Hydrobiology (BC AVCR) where I focus on ecology of juvenile fish stages. Besides, I am a field work assistant participating in both domestic and international fish surveys (Nederland, Norway and Austria).
