During my time as a Master’s student of Molecular and functional biology at the Biotechnical Faculty, Department of Biology, I have taken the most interest in animal physiology, evolution and functional morphology – in particular the sensory systems of insects. In my master thesis, I have studied the physiological and anatomical aspects of the retina of the band-eyed brown horsefly (Tabanus bromius). My current work is centered on vibrational communication of stink bugs (Pentatomidae) and leafhoppers (Cicadellidae).

In my free time, I like to read books and spend time in nature as an avid birdwatcher.
