Junior researchers

Dr. Michal Rezanka finished his PhD at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic in 2012 and since the same year he worked as a postdoc in Liberec. He was on an internship at P. D. Beer's group at University of Oxford in 2013/2014. Michal is now junior researcher in NanoIS Laboratory and he is mostly interested in cyclodextrin derivatives and their uses in wide range of chemistry applications. Michal enjoys driving everything with four wheels - normal cars, off-road cars, supersports, tractors and mowers, but his latest favourite vehicle is a jet ski.
Dr. Veronika Zajicova finished her PhD at the faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Liberec in 2011. As a PhD student, she participated 3 months internship at École nationale supérieure de chimie de Montpellier (2009), in the group of Dr. Michel Wong Chi Man. In 2011-2014 she worked as a junior researcher at the Centre for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies and Innovation in Liberec - the Laboratory for Biomedical Applications and then she participated post-doc fellowship in the group of Prof. Luisa De Cola at the Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (I.S.I.S.), Université de Strasbourg. Veronika is now back in Liberec working as a junior researcher in NanoIS Laboratory. She is mainly interested in the preparation and/or modification of biomaterials and materials used in medicine. Her favourite hobbies are: skiing, skating, travelling and history.

PhD students

Jan Lukasek studied organic chemistry at the University of Chemistry and Technolgy in Prague, where he defended his diploma thesis in 2014. Jan is now postgradual student at the Technical University of Liberec under prof. Stibor supervision. His research is focused on preparation of CD-functionalized conductive polymers for tissue engineering and synthesis of receptors for chiral anion recognition. He likes every kind of sport especially athletic, table tennis, hockey and skiing.
Sumita Swar is pursuing PhD study at the Technical University of Liberec, under the supervision of Prof. Ivan Stibor. She completed M.Sc. in Ecology and Environment at Sikkim-Manipal University of Health, Medical and Technological Sciences, India. Presently her study is focused on the surface modification of polyester and polyamide polymers for biomedical applications. Her hobbies are listening to music and travelling.
Ilona Krabicova finished her masters degree in Nanotechnology at the Technical University of Liberec in 2017 and now she continues her study in this field as a PhD student under Dr. Rezanka supervision. Her research is focused on preparation of defined cyclodextrin polymers. Ilona enjoys music, dancing and her new hobbies are drones and archery.


Marcel Havrda studies at the Technical University in the field of nanotechnology. He decided to study this topic, because he is interested in new technologies. Marcel is mainly engaged in organic chemistry, as a tool for functionalization of nanomaterials. He works on selective functionalization of cyclodextrins. Outside of the lab he enjoys racing with car models. His other hobbies are motorbikes, travelling and music.
Hana Sinkorova Hana Sinkorova is a student of the bachelors degree of nanomaterials at the Technical University in Liberec. Most of the time she spends in the laboratory is dedicated to the surface modification of polyethylene terephtalate and subsequent testing of these modified surfaces. She likes to spend her free time with her family. She also likes to play volleyball, various board or computer games and watching all kind of series.
Jaroslav Grof is a student of the bachelors degree, studies Nanotechnology at the Technical University in Liberec. He is interested in organic chemistry. Nowadays he spends a lot of time in a laboratory by functionalization of cyclodextrins. Jára loves driving cars, motorbike and also bike. Weekend evenings he spends by drumming on gigs with his band.
