Education

Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science

BSc. in Demography and Social Geography

  • My bachelor study programme focused on demographic analysis of populations in Europe and in a lesser extent in other global regions, basics of social, economic, and political geography, as well as foundations of statistical analysis
  • Thesis: Regional Distribution of Development Aid in Cambodia, accessible here (in Czech only)

MSc. in Regional and Political Geography

  • During my master studies I further developed my quantitative and qualitative research skills and academically focused on development studies, political geography, and geopolitics
  • In my second year I joined a research team studying environmental health and sanitation change
  • Thesis: Interventions using Community-led total sanitation approach (CLTS) in developing countries: an analysis of practical experience, accessible here (in Czech only, but an article based on the thesis is accessible here)

PhD. (still ongoing) in Regional and Political Geography

  • The reason why I continued on with my studies at the same department was simply because I had the oportunity to proceed with the research I started during my master
  • This allowed me to conduct two field surveys in the Indian state of Jharkhand and one in Ethiopia (though on this one I worked from home due to the pandemic)
  • Paper based on our 2016 research in Jharkhand can be accessed here

Stockholm University, Department of Geography

Erasmus study visit
