My short resume

I was born in Ostrava, Czech Republic, where I attended a basic school and a gymnasium. From October 1999 till September 2004 I studied applied mathematics at VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava. During this period I worked in statistical company Dataservis, Ostrava, Czech Republic, and on my research project at the Department of Applied Mathematics at VŠB - Technical University Ostrava (2003-2004), supervised by Prof. RNDr. Zdenek Dostal, CSc (research topic: Implementation and assessment of active set based algorithms for bound constrained quadratic programming). I visited Optimization group of prof. Kees Roos at Delft University of Technology (March 2004-May 2004). From December 2004 till January 2009 I was a PhD student at the Mathematical System Theory Group, Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics, Delft University of Technology. My promotor and daily supervisor was Prof. dr. G.J. Olsder (Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics, Delft University of Technology) and my co-promotor and second daily supervisor was Dr. M.C.J. Bliemer (Transportation and Planning Group, Delft University of Technology). On February 2, 2009, I defended my PhD thesis entitled 'On Stackelberg and Inverse Stackelberg Games & Their Applications in the Optimal Toll Design Problem, the Energy Markets Liberalization Problem, and in the Theory of Incentives'. From March 2009 till February 2010 I was working at the research institute INRIA Grenoble, France, focusing on modeling dynamic macroscopic nonlinear systems and developing methods for state estimation/prediction for such systems, using only limited (and biased) measurements of the system performance. From March 1, 2010 until March 2012 I was a PostDoc researcher at the Delft Center for Systems and Control, Delft University of Technology (project "Game theoretic methods for control of large-scale systems" - March 1, 2010 - February 28, 2011; project "Optimal Control and Game Theoretical Methods in Systems Biology" - from March 1, 2011). From April 1 until August 31, 2021 I was an assistant and then associate professor at the Department of Data Science & Knowledge Engineering, Maastricht University, where I set up and led its Dynamic Game Theory Team. Since November 2021 I am an associate professor and Delft Technology Fellow at Delft University of Technology. Look here for more information about my current research.
