After finishing my Ph.D. at the Charles University (Prague, Czech Republic) in early 2018, I started a postdoctoral fellowship under Brian’s supervision. I am mainly interested in various aspects of polyploid evolution in plants. My current research focuses at origin and establishment of new polyploid mutants, diploid-polyploid coexistence in contact zones and inter-ploidy gene flow. I am using a wide spectrum of model plants, but most of my work is based on Tripleurospermum inodorum (Asteraceae) and Knautia serpentinicola (Caprifoliaceae).
