- Personal History
I was born in 1987 in Brno, Czech Republic. A spent my childhood in a
nearby city Blansko, where I also completed my primary and secondary
education. After I studied 5 years at the elementary school
Dvorská, I transferred to the
8-year studies at the grammar school
There I became
more and more attracted to natural sciences, especially mathematics
and physics. I was so interested in these fields that I also tried
to compete with other students at yearly
Although I wasn't particularly successful, the preparation for these
contests greatly broadened my scope above the basic curriculum.
As a leisure time activity, I was interested in computers - mainly
hardware manipulation, system configuration, administration and some
very basic programming.
When the end of secondary school was getting
closer, I competed quite successfully at the national
science competition with my work on
cryptology. This experience was actually my first contact with what is
generally understood as
and quite honestly, I was very
amazed by this science discipline. During this time, I also went twice to the
scientific summer camp
organized by Charles University in Prague.
All the mentioned above heavily influenced my choice of university
Without much hesitation, I enrolled to the computer science
bachelor program at
Faculty of Mathematics and Physics,
Charles University in Prague. Studies
were quite hard right from the very beginning, but I got used to
it very quickly. I would say that first two years are the most intense
owing to the fact that you have to learn basics of abstract mathematics,
abstract informatics and practical programming all at once in a very
tight schedule so you can build upon it later. Third year, I started
to profile myself towards more practical side of informatics.
I spent most of the time developing my own compiler and working on
visualization tool for my bachelor thesis. During this time, I was also
given a chance to participate on writing a scientific article and also
in giving a short talk at the scientific
which was very interesting experience.
After securing the bachelor
degree, I enrolled to the follow-up master studies focused predominantly
on various flavors of system programming. To diversify my knowledge
portfolio, I also investigated area of data analytics and neural networks.
Other than that, my master studies were a continuous flow of very
challenging programming projects. At first, it was development of
operating system kernel. Then, I was briefly employed by
part of their summer stipend program
to port part of the existing compiler toolchain to the experimental
operating system. After that, I started working on my diploma thesis,
which was about designing and implementing a graphics subsystem for the
already mentioned experimental operating system. In parallel with the
diploma thesis, I also participated in the development of drug discovery
tool for the purpose of compulsory team software project. This was a very important
experience for me, because apart from programming itself I was given a
responsibility to coordinate a team of developers and to control overall
quality of the resulting product. Immediately after that, I was accepted
to yet another
summer stipend program.
This time, I was employed by
European Space Agency
and my task was to optimize an existing tool for image analysis. After the
project was completed, I focused on finishing my master studies, which
I successfully concluded in May 2013.
