I am a Full Professor in the Department of Cybernetics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University. I am a head of a small Biomedical Imaging Algorithms (BIA) group, which is a part of the Center for Machine Perception. My research mainly involves algorithms for medical and biological image processing. I am always looking for new collaborations and new projects, so if you have some interesting image data you need to analyze, feel free to contact me. I am also a member of the Academic Senate of CTU of CTU, of the Scientific Council of the FEE CTU, the Scientific Council of FI Masaryk University, and the Scientific Council of the Charles University.
