My photo


I'm no longer updating this webpage, the new one is here.

My name is Vitezslav Kala, but people just call me Vita. I am from the Czech Republic (from a small village with a long name Doubravice nad Svitavou), but soon I am graduating with a PhD in Mathematics after 5 years at Purdue University in Indiana; my advisor has been professor Shahidi. I am a Fulbrighter, a recipient of the International Fulbright Science and Technology Award, which has covered my PhD studies for 3 years.

During Fall 2014 I'll be a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn, then I'll continue for 2 years at the University of Göttingen.

I did my undergraduate and Master's studies in math in Prague at Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Algebra.
