Field of study



I have always been taken for a very competitive person. This trait has brought me my biggest success to date – membership in the Czech national team at two International Astronomy Olympiads – and a grant to study as part of the Czech section at Lycée Alphonse Daudet in Nimes, a lovely city in the south of France. The teaching methods there deepened my interest in the natural sciences, which ultimately led me to study Physics at the Imperial College London, as well as leading me to take interest in foreign languages, arts, and in education as a whole.

In the future, I would love to focus on research and on presenting physics in schools and to the general public. I would like to pass on even a little bit of the enthusiasm that several of my teachers fanned in me.
