biology student, graphic artist and DIYbio enthusiast
I've sketched, doodled and painted my childhood away, but after I acquired an education in graphic design in Vienna, gradual realization dawned that it was not my calling. I wanted to be a genetic engineer. Now I have a masters degree in molecular biology and genetics from the Charles university in Prague and am currently doing my PhD at the Max Planck institute in Dresden. Inbetween all that I played Go, drew a webcomic about it, and co-founded the first Czech hackerspace in Prague – where I still dabble in high voltage, electronics and DIYbio. Apart from good movie villains, books, and tea, I never stopped enjoying my childhood passion – drawing.
