Advancements in digital technology are a keystone of our modern lives. However, these advancements do not come without risks to our security. With more devices connected to the internet and more devices per user, there is a major increase in the data being collected, transported, and stored.
I am a R&D Consultant in AI, specialized on AI Planning, Scheduling, Routing and Discrete Optimization. I work both for academy and industry which gives me unique opportunity to bridge the gap between pure and applied science.
I have first studied AI Planning at the university of Strathclyde under prof. Derek Long. Afterwards I have moved to Prague where I have joined the AI Center. I started to work on several projects as a scientific programmer, the most important was an US EOARD funded project on UAV mission planning and collision avoidance which culminated in deployment on hardware UAVs and successful field test. I worked as a main programmer on the AI part of the project. Afterwards I started to pursue PhD at AIC, successfully defending my thesis in 2018. Apart from theoretical research I have participated on the ELECTRIFIC EU Horizon 2020 project where my work focused on supporting the development of advanced multi-destination routing algorithm for electric vehicles.
After my PhD I have moved more into the industry. My experience includes work for Meandair, a startup company based in Delft, Netherdlands, where my role was to perform a comprehensive and practical study on algorithms usable for planning in the aviation domain. Currently I am working with Meandair to develop its product. I also worked for the Oqton company on a small R&D project on including intra-factory logistic planning in their factory OS scheduling system.
