I graduated in biology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague. My doctoral research focused on the palaeoecology of late-glacial and early-Holocene vegetation, and in 2008 I was awarded a PhD at the department of botany. Between 2009 and 2011, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University, studying past interglacial dynamics. My primary research interests lie in Quaternary palaeoecology, which I translate mainly as a connection between ecology, geology and archaeology on various time scales. I am interested in studying past ecosystem dynamics and recognising baseline conditions before human impact. I also focus on the determinants of ecosystem change, such as climate or disturbances (fire and human impact), and on linking these processes with modern times.
