My name is Juraj Kavka, I was born in 1985 in Rožňava, in the Slovak Republic. I grew up in Dobšiná, where I attended elementary school and 8-year high school.

In 2008, I finished studies in the Faculty of Science at the University of Žilina, in study program "mathematics - informatics", with a Master degree. After finishing my studies, I worked in Bratislava as a programmer for four years.

In 2012, I got the opportunity to work as a technician in the Solar department, for the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic, in Ondrejov observatory. I have learned a lot of practical information about observing the Sun and about Sun itself there.

I have worked in Astronomical institute of Slovak Academy of Sciences since 2013, as a technician-observer at the Lomnicky Peak Observatory. I work there for usually 9 days long shifts.
