Short Vita

Originally I come from Slovakia where I lived until my University studies. I did my master and PhD in Macromolecular Chemistry at the Charles University in Prague in the Czech republic. Afterwards, in 2010 I moved to a postdoc position at the ICP.


Currently I am working on simulations of diffusion of small particles in hydrogels. The focus of the work is to provide an understanding of the diffusion process at the molecular level via computer modeling. It should also provide a theoretical background for interpretation of experimental data on such systems obtained from Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) measurements.

The current research project combines several topics I have been working on during my Ph.D. studies. In particular, these include MD simualtions of amphiphilic polymers, mean-field modeling of polymers and MC simulations of diffusion of particles for the interpretation of FCS.
