I am a research scientist at the Institute of Hydrobiology and the SoWa RI (Biology Centre CAS). My scientific interests extend across the fields of fish ecology, trophic interactions and their role in food web structure, ecosystem functions and their responses to anthropogenic stress, sustainable water use and integrated catchment management. I have conducted research in many natural and artificial freshwater systems, particularly lakes, in the Czech Republic and abroad (Austria, Netherlands, Kenya). I have been the leader of three national research projects and participated in several other national and international projects.
