My research is mainly on topics in international corporate tax abuse, tax havens, financial secrecy, corruption, and public procurement. Through my research, I aim to help in the ongoing fight against corruption, tax abuse, financial secrecy, and inefficiency of the public sector.
I teach the undergraduate courses Principles of Economics I and II and Public Finance and the graduate course Public Economics. I hold a PhD in Economics from Charles University and a Master’s in Econometrics from Aix-Marseille School of Economics. I occasionally work as an analyst for Econlab, a public data analytics NGO based in Prague, mostly on the PolitickeFinance.cz project, and consult for Datlab, a private IT company, on public procurement data, mostly related to the Digiwhist project.
