Jana arrived from a cold Europe where she completed her masters and PhD in plasma physics. After working in several European fusion centers – Italy, Spain, Germany, Netherlands but most of all in her home institute in Prague, she took off for postdoc positions in India and ANU, Canberra. Now, she is part of Program 6. With her unusual background, she is exploiting her programming skills which she gained during her research, and her strong analytic skills, as the mathematics and mathematical logic is one of the foot-stones of her education and lifestyle
