At present I am mostly interested in String Field Theory. This is an offshell formulation of
string theory that has proven useful so far to describe tachyon condensation on unstable D-brane systems.
I am working on exact analytic classical solutions but in the near future I wish to study some more challenging
topics such as quantum effects in string field theory and/or explore possible applications to more physical
In the past I have been also interested in stable domain walls with fake-supersymmetry, non-commutative
geometry and field theory and various aspects of anomalies.
2007 EURYI Award
On 27th of September 2007 I have
received the 2007 European Young Investigator Award from
EUROHORC's and ESF. The award is a five year grant that helped me create an independent
string theory group at Institute of Physics at the Czech Academy of Sciences starting in
Fall 2008. For a project description and more information see the
Occasionally there might appear some postdoctoral positions. Information for students who would like to pursue their PhD in string theory will appear soon. In the meantime please send me an email.
