Personal Summary:
As doctoral candidate with focus on urban simulation, at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar – Germany (Prof. Dr. Dirk Donath, Chair of Planning Systems), my work is tightly connected with the global and local challenges of our time - the unprecedented urban growth and transformation. Importance of this task is underlined by the responsibility we carry on by making decisions, which shape these future environments and will influence the lives of billions. With this in mind, urban analysis and predictive modeling are the core elements of my curricular and research activities, since deliberate shaping of future is inevitably connected with the ability to anticipate it.

Research / Teaching topics:
Spatial analysis (Visibility, Walkability, Spatial configuration), Generative algorithms, Optimization, Statistics/Predictive modeling

2015-          Doctoral candidate at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Chair Planning systems
2009-2011 Master of Science at Faculty of architecture, Slovak University of technology
