Main Research Interests

My main interest is text simplification, especially:

  • Lexical simplification
  • Explanation generation
  • Readability and understandability, particularly measuring understandability
  • Adapting text for specific target groups (hearing-impaired, mentally disabled, dyslexic, autistic)

I am also interested in language acquisition, user experience and data structures.

I organize Czech Olympiad in informatics (called Mathematical olympiad, category P), I occasionally help with Central European Olympiad in Informatics too.


I was born on 29th January 1992.

My hobbies include mathematical linguistics of course :), hiking, gardening, playing the guitar, proof-reading, organizing events and chatting.


I don't teach any formal course for various reasons.

However, feel free to ask for a consultation regarding text simplification, user experience, git or social ethics.
