Jakub received his PhD at the Charles University (Prague, Czech Rep.). Then he became a postdoctoral researcher in the Ewha Womans University (Seoul, Korea), in the Sungkyunkwan University (Suwon, Korea), in the National Taiwan University (Taipei, Taiwan) and at the Astronomical Institute of the Charles University. His fields of expertize are gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), instrumentation for GRB detection and statistical methods for data analysis. At Eötvös University he works on the CubeSat project called CAMELOT.
