My research is focused on chromospheric and transition region fine structures and also on diagnostic properties of spectral lines in the visible spectrum of the Sun. I teach occasionaly students from Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice the course on astrophysical practicum involving solar spectroscopy and IDL programming. I give popular talks and presentations on astronomy for ground school pupils and high school students and write popular articles for the journals Vesmír , Kozmos , and Quark .
