I was born in the Czech Republic, where I completed my graduate studies at Palacky University in Olomouc (2006). I moved to the United Kingdom and in 2011 received a Ph.D. from the Department of History and the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish relations, University of Southampton. I joined the School of Humanities in 2012 as a postdoctoral fellow in Jewish history. From 2015 I work as Lecturer (2017 Senior Lecturer) in modern European history. I have published in the fields of Holocaust studies and Jewish history. My current project deals with post-Holocaust reconciliation and transitional justice in Czechoslovakia (Holocaust on Trial: Post-Holocaust reconciliation in Czechoslovakia, 1945-53). I am also a co-organizer of a project on humanitarian aid for Jews incarcerated in the ghettos and concentration camps during the Second World War (together with Jan Lambertz and Gerald Steinacher).
