About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Algebra, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague, Czechia. I am working with Alex Kazda on the grant project Primus/SCI/12 "Universal algebra in finite and infinite constraint satisfaction".

My primary research interest is universal algebra and its connections to theoretical computer science. A majority of my work is concerned with the complexity of the Constraint Satisfaction Problem, the algebraic approach to the CSP and related structural properties of finite algebras and relational structures. I also study other computational questions about finite algebras.

Recently I was a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder, a postdoc at the Algorithmics Research group at the Department of Theoretical Computer Science, Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, and a researcher at the Institute for Algebra, Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria.

In September 2014 I defended a PhD thesis on "Constraint satisfaction, graphs and algebras" at the Department of Algebra, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic under supervision of Libor Barto.
