I am a PhD student of social psychology at Faculty of Social Sciences of Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. I pursue my research under the supervision of Hana Konečná and focus mainly at psychological aspects of fertility preservation, family planning, infertility, and person-centered medicine. I received my Diploma degree in psychology at Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic (2014). I also spent one semester at the Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany during my undergrad studies. I am certified in crisis intervention (1-year course) and a member of ESHRE, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.
