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.
