I got all my degrees (MS, PhD) at the Charles University in Prague (Section of Ecology and Ethology, Department of Zoology, Faculty of Science), where I focused mostly on domestic horse ethology, specifically on maternal and aggressive behaviour and cognition. After I finished master degree I started my working carrier as a researcher in the Department of Ethology of Institute of Animal Science, Prague, Czech Republic. Since 2012 I have been participating on teaching at the University of Life Sciences, where I am working in present, being responsible for teaching the subject Introduction into Animal Husbandry.
I participated on several research projects, the project NAZV QH 92265 supported by Czech Ministry of Agriculture (Optimization of the breeding management and veterinary care in critically endangered population of Kladruby horse) and the project AWIN supported by the EU VII Framework Program (FP7-KBBE-2010-4) (Animal Welfare Indicators). I worked also abroad, namely in Spain for several months during my stays at the University of Castilla-La Mancha.
In my other scientific activities I would like to point out my work as Secretary of the Czech and Slovak Ethological Society and the Editor of the Faculty of Science (Charles University in Prague) web section for scientific dissemination. For 4 years already I am the consultant of the ethological issues for the NGO Česká Krajina who runs unique project - Arrival of big ungulates into the Czech landscape. Finally I also helped to organize several international conferences, ECBB 2014 being the biggest and IWEC 2019 being the most actual.
My scientific interest has now broader spectrum, from the ethology of wild, feral and domestic horses to the ethology of deer and antelopes.
