I started my career as a researcher at Charles University in Prague. My PhD gave me the opportunity to work in environmental research at the international level through European Commission Directorate General Research Framework Programme projects.
I was also privileged to work as a Visiting Research Fellow and as a Research Scientist in Greece, Denmark, Estonia, and Finland. While in UNDP, apart from serving as a key focal point for the Regional process for Rio+20, I also provided policy advice on sustainable development to the Kingdom of Lesotho.
