I became a member of the Institute and a new addition to the research team in November 2021 as a fresh university graduate. I completed my studies in the United Kingdom, obtaining a bachelor's degree in philosophy and history at the University of Exeter and a master's degree in modern European history at the University of Oxford. Thanks to Erasmus+ I also spent one year at Radboud Universiteit in the Netherlands. Regarding my research, I mainly focused on the period of the communist regime in Czechoslovakia. I prefer modern historical methods, typical for their strong interdisciplinary overlaps with philosophy, sociology, and anthropology. My domain at the institute is historical analysis of the democratic development in Czech society. As for my leisure activities, I usually seek quality company and beer.
