Metamorphic Petrology

- studies of phase equilibria in high-grade metamorphic rocks and their modeling using equilibrium thermodynamics (the Perple_X package),
e.g. thermodynamic modeling of stability field of various mineral asseblages, determination of pressure-temperature conditions of their
formation, and modeling of expansion of the stability field of various phases due to presence of minor components.

- spatial distribution of minerals in high-grade rocks, and microstructural changes associated with metamorphic process.

Structural Geology and Tectonics

- field-oriented studies of structures developed during collisional processes, and combination of structural and metamorphic data
for the purpose of interpretation of thermal and tectonic evolution of orogenic belts. My fields of interest are the collisional boundaries
at the western and eastern margins of the Bohemian Massif, the Kaoko belt in NW Namibia and the Dom Feliciano Belt in Uruguay.
