Scientific activities

For more than 15 years, I have been working in the area of high performance computing, scientific code development, parallel and distributed algorithms, and numerical simulations. I have worked with several outstanding research teams in Australia and the United Kingdom on the development of large scale simulation tools for personalized medicine. I am a co-founder of the k-Wave project ( Since the first beta release in 2009, k-Wave has rapidly become the de facto standard software in the field, with almost 25,000 registered users in 60 countries (from both academia and industry). The toolbox now underpins a wide range of international research in ultrasound and photoacoustics, ranging from the reconstruction of clinical photoacoustic images, model based treatment planning to fundamental studies into the design of ultrasound transducers.

Since 2013, I have been the key person in supercomputing at the Brno University of Technology with resource allocations in tens of millions core hours in total. I act as a mediator between faculty students, academics and supercomputing centres such as IT4Innovations. My endeavour has led to over 1500 students doing their assignments on Czech supercomputers. Since 2016, I have been the leader of the Supercomputing Technologies research group. Since 2017, I have been a member of the Academic Senate of the Brno University of Technology, a member of Scientific Council of IT4Innovations Supercomputing Centre and User Advisory Board. In 2021, I became a member of iTRUSST, an International Transcranial Ultrasonic Stimulation Safety and Standards consortium (
