Where do you currently work and what is the scope of your work?

I have been working in Rohde & Schwarz subsidiary in the Czech Republic as a developer of robotic applications as well as a developer of new technologies. I'm responsible for vision system applications, programming of robots and my duty is also the project management.

What has your doctoral studies given you for your current career?

During my doctoral study, I learned several skills that have been helping me in my career. First of all, I like to mention the insider look. It means to look deeper into the problem that needs to be solved, to read the corresponding articles, to write down equations and finally to verify my assumptions because having the knowledge a level further always leads to better results and better understanding of failure.

At the faculty, I had the opportunity to manage my own project that impelled me to experience the project leading strategies and decisions. I appreciate those experiences when I plan upcoming projects.

Last but not least, I have also learned how to defend my work in front of a big audience and more importantly in English.

Where have you been during your doctoral studies and where have you been at postdoc?

If I omit the plenty conference in various world distances, I have to point out the scholarship at Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt in Braunschweig where I stayed for five months. As a postdoc, I worked at LBNL (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) in Berkeley, California. I contributed to the measurements of the coils and undulators for the particle accelerator for one and half years.
