I obtained my PhD at Charles University in Prague in 1990 and I held senior positions in Vienna, Adelaide, and stayed shortly at dozens of other places all over the world. My main scientific achievements are reflected in two very influential monographs Natural Operations in Differential Geometry, Springer 1993 (with I. Kolář and P.W. Michor), and Parabolic Geometries I: Background and General Theory, AMS Publishing House, 2009 (with A. Cap).
Since 2008, I am serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the Elsevier’s prestigious journal Differential Geometry and its Applications.
My commitments to strategic development projects resulted in participation in numerous further managerial activities at academic, regional and national levels (e.g. Dean of the Faculty of Science, Vice-Rector for Strategy and Development at the Masaryk University, head of the Physical Sciences Division of the Czech Grant Agency, member of the panel launching the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic etc.). In the years 2015 through 2023, I survived serving as the director of our Maths department.

Sometimes, I am even available in my office, but I love to work at home:
