PhD thesis / stage / postdoc
 I am always interested in working with bright students and/or
postdocs. I have openings for internships 2016/17. I am looking for
2 postdocs and a PhD student to start in 2017. If you would like to
work in my group send me an email, and we can talk about the possibilities.
 Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
 Neural networks, theory and algorithms for deep learning, representation learning.
 Statistical physics of sparse estimation, matrix
factorization, dictionary learning.
 Inference on networks, influence maximization.

Physics competitions
 FyKoS (Physical Correspondence Seminar), at MFF UK Prague.
If you are a secondary school student interested in physics visit
FyKoS homepage. FyKoS is a Physical Correspondence Seminar for secondary schools organized by students of MFF UK in Prague. During my secondary school study I participated myself and it made my enthusiasm to study physics flourish. As an undergraduate student I was one of the main organizers
of FyKoS. I also wrote a paper (pdf, in czech) to Skolska Fyzika (Physics at school) advertising the FyKoS seminar. In any case, check the almanac presenting the best FyKoS problem in the last ten years: rocenka Fykosu, rocnik 1120 (pdf, in czech).
 Physical Olympiad
A prestigious physics competition for secondary school students is
the Physical
Olympiad. I used to be a member of the Central
Committee. Together with B. Vybiral I wrote two study texts for FO, you can find them for example here . During my secondary school study I was quite successful in Physical Olympiad. In 1999 I was third in the national round in Chrudim and
after that I was a member of Czech national team at
XXX international
Physics Olympiad in Padova in Italy where I won the
bronze medal and I was the third girl in absolute order ;).
Even some newspaper
wrote about us.
Popularization of science
 One day in summer 2004 while hiking in a forest in Corsica I
learned that the number of spirals on a pinecone is a Fibonacci
number and I decided to spread the knowledge about this wonderful
phenomenon (called Phyllotaxy) in a series of popular seminars,
lectures and papers. One presentation can be downloaded
here (pdf) and a paper published in a journal for secondary school students and
teachers Rozhledy matematickofyzikalni can be downloaded here (pdf, in czech).
 A popularization paper about the glassy
behavior of the difficult optimization problems for a special issue
of the "Ceskoslovensky casopis pro fyziku" is here (pdf, in czech).
