I am assistant professor of international relations at the Institute of Political Studies at Charles University. I research and teach courses on international and European politics and political economy. I have studied at Charles University, at the University of Bath, at Princeton University, and at Freie Universität Berlin. In my research, I focus on the functioning of international institutions and on whether and how their design can make them function better. Empirically, my core interests are in the politics of global economic institutions, notably the World Trade Organization, and of the European Union. The results of my research have been published, among others, in The Review of International Organizations (2017) , New Political Economy (2018) , Comparative European Politics (2018) and the Journal of European Integration (2015).

You can find more details about the research I do and the courses I teach in the appropriate sections of this website. Here I only want to write that I enjoy both research and teaching a lot. I hope that this joy gets, one way or another, projected also into the outputs of my work. My pet project of videos about politics, Politika Z, is a good example of that.

Some time ago, I have created a LinkedIn profile. It basically works as a CV.
