I am a PhD student at FIT CTU in Prague, advised by Jan Janousek. Formerly, I worked in Silicon Valley for 0xdata co-founded by Cliff Click on distributed scalable big data analytics and SN Systems in Bristol, UK on SONY Playstation 3 and PS Vita compilers & toolchains.
I am interested in design, analysis and optimalization of programming languages (mostly dynamic, currently R), big code & synthesis and embedded systems.

I have always enjoyed teaching and in the past, I taught Java, C++, Virtual Macgines and Embedded systems at university, or high school level. In 2015 I was awarded Google CodeWeek funding for embedded programming for high school kids at Arcibiskupske Gymnazium in Prague.
