About me


The research is concentrated on some domains of the applications of artificial neural networks, especially on the application of a speech processing. Apart of the modeling of synthetic speech prosody I am also active in the new research field of speech signal analysis for medical purposes. It is part of joint research program with the Clinic of Paediatrie Neurology, Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague. Master degree and Phd students from the Laboratory of Artificial Neural Network Applications ( LANNA ) participate in both research areas.

The memberships in the INNS (International Neural Networks Society), in the ELSNET-STN (as Language and Speech Technology Expert) and in the programme and technical committees of an international conferences organized by International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED) especially are the response on the publications.

The other expert activities are connected with a reviewing and with a reader's reports for technical journals and publishers, for Czech Science Foundation and Czech Accreditation Institute.

Pedagogic activities

The pedagogic activities are divided into two parts. They are the courses in the basic study and in the bachelor and master study programme. The topics are fundamentals of electrical circuits, linear circuits and systems, and electric filters. One of the master study courses concerns some applications of the artificial neural networks. The leadership of the BSc. projects, MSc. thesis, and PhD. thesis are parts of the pedagogic activities.
