I am a second year PhD student at the IMPACT (CTU/CIIRC) and valeo.ai teams working under the supervision of Josef Sivic (IMPACT), Patrick Pérez and David Hurych (both valeo.ai). Previously, I got a Master's degree and graduated with honors in Computer Science/Computer Vision from CTU in Prague. My research focuses in developing algorithms for scene understanding for applications in autonomous driving.
