Andrej did his PhD in the group of Ivo and Irena Stary at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague (IOCB). After graduation in 2014, he joined one of the IOCB-SWAT synthetic unit of Dr. Pavel Majer (the name was inspired by the U.S. special police unit team) focusing on proof of concept and transfer to applications. Since 2016, he has been working at CEMES in Toulouse. Andrej is an expert in the synthesis of helically chiral aromatic compounds and polyaromatic compounds with specific functions, and has received numerous awards; a funding from the renowned Experientia foundation (2016), the Alfred Bader annual prize (Sigma Aldrich) of Czech Republic in organic chemistry (2018) and the Young investigator award (ICT prize) by the Institut de Chimie of Toulouse (2019).

Scientific project

Feb 2021 – present: Valence delocalisation within Mixed-valence Molecular Clusters
PhD project
· Studying spin dynamics of mixed valence molecules using neutron spectroscopy
· Investigating the influence of applied electric fields to said clusters
· Modelling of the magnetic properties and neutron spectra with numerical methods
Nov 2019 – Dec 2021: Studies of magnetic properties in Layered Double Hydroxides
Master’s project
· Studied aluminium hydroxide-based layered double hydroxides (LDHs) with Cu2+, Ni2+ and Co2+
· Performed bulk magnetic measurements to determine the magnetic properties
· Used inelastic neutron scattering to measure the magnetic spectrum of Ni-LDH
· Used neutron powder diffraction to confirm absence of magnetic ordering in Ni-LDH down to 2 K
Jan 2017 – June 2017: Simulations of classical spin dynamics
Bachelor’s project
· Developed a program capable of simulating classical spin dynamics of up to 20 spins governed by the
exchange interaction in an external magnetic field
· Implemented the Langevin equation to account for thermally induced spin fluctuations
· Implemented a FFT-algorithm to calculate the dynamical structure factor as a function of q and energy
from the spin dynamics, which allowed for comparison to real neutron spectroscopy data.
