The people who power MENDELU

Meet some of our enthusiastic colleagues.

Dalibor Húska

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

He leads the Plant and Microalgae NanoBiotechnology Research Group, which addresses the challenges of modern agriculture in today's world: protecting natural resources for future generations, increasing crop yields without expanding farmland, and reducing environmental damage. Our scientists are investigating the use of nanomaterials as pesticides and fertilisers, or the importance of microalgae for the food and pharmaceutical industries, and their cultivation in space.

Jarmila Krojerová

Department of Zoology, Fisheries, Hydrobiology and Apiculture

Jarmila Krojerová's research focuses on the ecology and conservation genetics of endangered mammal species, including wild felines such as the lynx and wildcat. Using molecular genetic methods, she investigates how their populations function, what factors threaten them and how to effectively protect them to preserve them as part of our fauna for future generations.

Lubor Lacina

Department of Finance

He has long been one of the few Czech economists dealing with the issue of the Czech Republic's membership in the euro area. His colleagues jokingly refer to him as one of the last living Renaissance economists because of his wide range of knowledge and economic and social context. His main subject of interest is the functioning of a small open economy in the environment of economic and political integration of the European continent and in the environment of global competition.

Martina Rašticová

Department of Law and Social Sciences

Her research, creative and publishing activities are focused on the issues of personnel management, leadership and management of diversity teams, gender management, intercultural management, age management and work-life balance, and she has been publishing in this area for more than 20 years.

Radek Pokorný

Department of Silviculture

Radek Pokorný deals with forestry in the field of forest cultivation, stand structure, carbon forestry, forest water balance and adaptation measures in the context of climate change. In the long term, he is more specifically concerned with the phenology, morphology and eco-physiology of forest tree species, focusing on the spatial and temporal allocation of growth, stand water balance and transpiration of trees in relation to habitat conditions.
