I am a professor at the Department of Mathematics at the Faculty of Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. I work in combinatorics and discrete mathematics, especially graph theory. I teach courses on discrete mathematics, linear algebra, codes, logic and set theory, and organise the Graph Theory seminar at the department. I am a Managing Editor of the Journal of Graph Theory. Since 2019 I serve as a secretary of the Czech Committee for Mathematics.

I am also an editor
of **Innovations
in Graph Theory**, a diamond open access journal
for high-quality research in graph theory and its interactions
with other areas, launched in August
2023. We
are accepting
