At Albertov, I first studied the teaching combination of geography and history, then physical geography with a specialization in meteorology, and I try to connect it all together. Appart from our faculty, I also work in the department of meteorology of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences. My main research topic is heavy rainfall, but I also deal with other meteorological hazards. I am particularly interested in historical meteorological events and floods. Moreover, I chair the terminological group of the Czech Meteorological Society in its efforts to further improve the Electronic Meteorological Dictionary; I am especially interested in the history and etymological explanation of individual terms. Last but not least, in addition to my own pedagogical activities, I also deal with the issue of geographical education with special regard to physical geography.

Do you like to observe the weather? So do I, and therefore since 2010 I have been conducting regular discussions about the weather at our faculty, the so-called meteomeetings. We analyze the weather of the past week and examine the forecasts for the next days, competing in the accuracy of estimating the value of a particular meteorological element. Although meteomeetings are included in the course Weather Analysis and Forecast and now also in the Meteorological Practice, everybody is welcome. From the next semester, we are looking forward to personal meetings again, but we will also start presenting interesting outputs online for others interested in the atmosphere.
