He was a geo-energy research coordinator at Czech Geological Survey. His professional focus was research and project management in the field of CO2 geological storage, subsurface energy storage and other geo-energy technologies, including abundant experience with participation in international projects.
He was the project coordinator of FP6 CO2NET EAST, TOGEOS and REPP-CO2. He was also a Management Board member of the European research projects CGS Europe (FP7) and ENOS (H2020).
