Research Centre Řež (CVŘ) is a research organisation with the main aim of research, development and innovations in the field of power generation (especially nuclear). CVŘ owns a unique research infrastructure such as experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0 and technological experimental circuits. Significant modernization of the infrastructure was realized within years 2012-2017 due to the implementation of the SUSEN project (in the framework of the Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovations of the European Regional Development Fund). The core activities of CVŘ involve fundamental and applied research on experimental research reactors LVR-15 and LR-0. Other activities are arising from the participation of CVŘ in the international Jules Horowitz Reactor project. No less important are national and international research projects.

I graduated in 1994 in nuclear engineering from the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague, Ph.D. degree I obtained in reactor physics in 2004. I started my career at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Plant in 1994, in 2007 I moved to ČEZ headquarters to the position of Technical support section director, responsible for technical inspections and diagnostics, maintenance system, equipment life management, documentation management and information systems for nuclear, coal, gas and hydro power plants. I have been working at Research center Řež since 2016, first as the director of Research and development section, from 2022 as Strategy director. I am president of the Czech Nuclear Society.
