Podrobnější informace v češtině (Summary in Czech)

I am an Assistant Professor of Business Informatics (with a specialization in Information Systems Development and Software Quality Management) at The Prague University of Economics and Business (formerly University of Economics, Prague), Czech Republic. I have over 10 years of industrial experience in IT management and software quality assurance acquired during my tenure with several large companies within the telecom, finance, and pharma industry domains. Stemming from my professional background, my main research interests lie at the intersection of Empirical Software Engineering, Business Information Systems and Medical Informatics (especially Consumer Health Informatics). The main topics include IS development methods, software quality management techniques and philosophies, social aspects of software development, and user-centric software solutions for healthcare.

I also pursue historical and philosophical questions related to various computing and business academic disciplines. In this area, my current interests are the historical development of Czechoslovak computing sciences in the era of Communism (e.g, the role of Soviet-style Cybernetics), qualitative research methods, and paradigmatic differences between various academic disciplines in general.
