Field of study



I lived a great part of my life to date in Česká Kamenice, a town of about five thousand people in the north of Bohemia. That’s also where I started studying at the local secondary school. During my studies at the school, I had an incredible amount of luck when it comes to physics and mathematics teachers, and I found my way to computers over time. The possibility of applying the principles of physics in computer simulators and games fuelled my passion and it gave me a great motivation for further studies beyond the scope of the curriculum while at school.

Based on my interest in natural sciences and mathematics, I decided to switch to the Christian Doppler Gymnasium in Prague in 2010. I filed my application with the Imperial College London and started studying Physics at the university in the 2011-2012 academic year. For the 2012-2013 academic year, The Kellner Family Foundation has helped me cover the costs of my accommodation, and I am immensely grateful for it.
