I was born on the 21st of May in Prague, Czech Republic. Our family then moved to a small village Rokytnice in Eagles Mountains where I obtained my primary school education. As as high school student I studied at Technical Lyceum in Letohrad. I have a BSc degree in physics and a MSc degree from astronomy and astrophysics from the Charles University in Prague. Now I started my doctoral studies in theoretical physics, astronomy and astrophysics also at Charles University and at Bonn University. As a BSc student I enjoyed extended research stays at ESO in Santiago and at DLR in Berlin.
Considering my free time activity, I enjoy all winter sports (and teach skiing and snowboarding), I hike, swim (recently I started to train the so called total immersion free style) and I take care of my proud black dog Mistr (seen in the picture with me). I also enjoy learning new Python features and I am a keen user of the VIM editor. I daily programme in Python, but I also use and code FORTRAN programmes (e.g. FLASH, Sverre Aarseth's Nbody6, Teysier & Lueghausen's Phantom of Ramses codes , PEGASE).
The main research focus concerning my PhD program is the study of IMF variability in different environments. This binds together theoretical NBODY, statistical and stellar population synthesis modelling of spectral energy distributions together with observations. This project I work on under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Pavel Kroupa (Charles University, University in Bonn) and co-supervised by Dr. Jaroslav Haas (Charles University) and Dr. Giacomo Beccari (ESO, Garching).
I am also interested in multiple stellar populations in star clusters as I studied the origin of anomalous globular clusters during my master studies (Jerabkova et al. 2016, in preparation). During my bachelor studies I focused on the peculiar B[e] stars the origin of which is still not understood. With aditional data I managed to publish the bachelor thesis (Jerabkova et al. 2016). Thanks to Dr. Petr Kabath (Astronomical Institute, Ondrejov) I am also involved in the study of atmospheres of exoplanets. During my internship at ESO, Chile, and at the DLR, Berlin, I developed a series of codes for the analysis and synthetic data creation in Python (Sedgadathi, Boffin, Jerabkova, et al. 2016).
My scientific hobby is thinking about and keeping myself updated about the current state of knowledge in physical cosmology. I am particularly interested in the debate on whether dark matter exists or whether Milgromian dynamics is an effectively correct description of physical reality.
