He completed his master’s degree and rigorous examination at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Comenius University in Bratislava. As part of the research activity, he is devoted to the evaluation of the territories from the point of view of the action of natural and anthropogenic risks (e.g., flood threat, landslide hazard), the creation of the models and the processing of spatial data, including attribute data. Currently, his research focuses on evaluations of urbanized areas related to the impacts of climate change and on working with climate data from the research weather stations. His research activity is very closely connected to work with spatial data, creating models in a GIS environment also including the satellite images. He also applies this knowledge in teaching.
As part of his research, he participated in international and national projects (Horizon 2020, EEA, VEGA). The research goals were the creation of land threat models, the assessment of the quality of environmental components, the determination of territorial availability, the identification of urban heat islands, etc.
