Vladimíra Petráková, PI
Vladka enjoys applying principles of physics and optics to solve challenges in biology. Her passion for combining approaches from different fields stem from studies of biomedical engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague. She builds her research on the expertise in superresolution microscopy and plasmonic nanomaterials gained at Free University Berlin, where she worked under the lead of two amazing mentors, Stephanie Reich and Helge Ewers. Her PhD was all about nanodiamonds.
She is one of the founders of an organization Czexpats in Science that builds a global network of Czech researchers and fosters their cooperation with the Czech Republic. Our flagship activity is a yearly Christmas conference “Konference pod stromeček”, where we discuss career hacks, grant options in Czechia, and many more. When not working she is catching up on activities of her four children.
