I am currently serving as Deputy Head of the Department of Physics, and a member of the Quantum dynamics, optics and information group at Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. I am also a part-time researcher at the Department of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Wigner Research Center for Physics, a former unit of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
I am member of the executive committee and work package leader in DigiQ project aiming at transforming the landscape of quantum technology education across Europe. Students from FNSPE interested in DigiQ should contact me directly, while students from FIT should contact Ivo Petr at the Department of Applied Mathematics.
I am a coordinator of QTEdu Open Master Programme which is a pilot project of the Quantum Flagship aiming at fostering masters level education in quantum technologies in Europe. You can contact me if you are interested in joining this pilot project. I am also its local representative at the CTU: thus I'm the first point of contact if you are a student or faculty from CTU and interested in participating in any of the actions of QTOM.
I am fascinated by quantum sciences and how it is developing into a technology that is going to revolutionarize our lives. Besides actively contributing to its scientific development, I have recently realized the importance of sharing and explaining the expected benefits and possible uses of this technology for everyone. This motivated me to found a node of the QWorld network in the Czech Republic. The aim of the QCzech community is to allow interested people to learn more details about quantum technologies, and to promote quantum solutions among those who have not yet heard of them.
My current research interests include
- Quantum walks: theoretical and experimental applications
- Measurement induced nonlinear quantum dynamics
- Linear and non-linear quantum optics
- Cavity quantum electrodynamics
- Quantum simulations and quantum computation in general
