I am a Senior Manager and Principal Research Staff Member at IBM Research where I lead a team of researchers and software engineers focused on research and development of AI and Blockchain technologies across IBM product portfolio including AI Applications (e.g., IBM Maximo, IBM Sterling, IBM Blockchain) and AI Platforms.

I was a Fulbright scholar at Carnegie Mellon University and a DAAD scholar at University of Saarland. I received my PhD in Computer Science at Charles University, Prague.

My interests and expertise are at an intersection of distributed systems, AI and Blockchain. I was named IBM Master Inventor, I have published over 100 research articles and patents and my work was recognized in multiple IBM outstanding technical accomplishment awards.

My work has impacted products such as IBM Case Manager, IBM Watson Analytics for Social Media and IBM Client Insight for Wealth Management.

Please, see my publications if you are interested in my work, and reach out to me if you are interested in collaboration or discussing any of the topics above. We are also always looking for exceptional candidates and and interns.
