I am a lecturer in Humanitarian Engineering within the Humanitarian Engineering group. My main focus is:

  • Humanitarian engineering education
  • Ethics of social innovations in the humanitarian engineering context
  • Curriculum design
  • Training
  • Challenge-based & interdisciplinary learning in the context of engineering education

I come from the Czech Republic. I acquired my BSc degree in Social Pathology and Prevention in 2016 and in 2019, I graduated from Social Pedagogy (MSc.) from the University of Hradec Králové (CZE). In 2020, I acquired another MSc degree in Educational Science and Technology at the University of Twente.
