I write about science

.... for Charles University and other media.  
I originally thought I would be a scientist. During my one-year Fulbright internship at Northwestern University in Chicago, however, I discovered that I wanted to work in science communication. 


I write about science, and specifically about Czech scientists working in the Czech Republic and abroad, for these media outlets: 


I studied Clinical Biochemistry (MSc) and Chemistry Teaching (BSc) at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague and completed my PhD in Neuroscience at the Third Faculty of Medicine, Charles University.

 My original plan was to become a scientist. During my studies, I worked at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Institute of Molecular Genetics, and the Institute of Physiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences. I had summer internships at the Laboratory of Experimental Medicine in Olomouc and at EMBL Heidelberg in Germany.

During my PhD studies, I spent one year as a Fulbright Visiting Student Researcher at Northwestern University in Chicago, where, in addition to my own research in neuroscience, I was also involved in science communication.

I had been interested in science popularization and communication for a long time, but it wasn't until my stay in Chicago that I realized I wanted to do it for a living – and that it was possible. When I returned, I did internships in the science departments at Czech TV and Czech Radio. I wrote my first interviews for the Experientia Foundation. Since March 2020, I have been working as a science journalist at Forum, the Charles University magazine.

I am a coauthor of 
Bioléčiva (“Biodrugs”), a textbook for students, and Do Formy, a book about healthy living.
In September 2022, I was awarded 
the Dimitris N. Chorafas Prize for PhD graduates, which I will use to further my education in science communication.   

I volunteer with 
Czexpats in Science and the Mindfulness Research and Practice Network of Masaryk University.
