My research area is generally atmospheric physics, meteorology, and climatology. I focus on the dynamics and variability of the middle atmospheric processes, mainly on the large-scale circulation, analysis of the wave activity, the impact of localized gravity wave forcing, or long-term trends. Over the past decade, a group oriented on middle atmospheric processes has been established under my supervision. This research is unique in the Czech Republic and we actively collaborate with other research teams abroad. Most of our studies are focused on the dynamical processes, wave forcing, trends, etc., utilizing a specific approach, including, e.g., GPS RO analysis and numerical simulations.

Besides the middle atmospheric studies, I have participated in research aiming at regional modeling, historical climate or atmospheric chemistry and urban climate. My lectures also cover subjects of atmospheric chemistry, air quality and physical oceanography.
