My name is Vitezslav Kala, but people just call me Vita. I’m an associate professor at Charles University (Department of Algebra), currently leading our number theory group.
Previously I was a postdoc at the University of Göttingen, working with Valentin Blomer (between 2015 and 2017). During the fall 2014 I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn.
I got PhD in Mathematics after 5 years at Purdue University in Indiana; it was my pleasure to work under the guidance of Freydoon Shahidi. I’m a Fulbrighter, a recipient of the International Fulbright Science and Technology Award, which has covered my PhD studies for 3 years.
I did my undergraduate and Master’s studies in math in Prague at Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Algebra. Originally I’m also from the Czech Republic (from a small village with a long name Doubravice nad Svitavou).
