I was born in the Czech Republic, but lived most of my life in the Netherlands and UK. I started at the TU/e two and half years ago, in the group of Rene Janssen, Physics Department as a replacement for maternity leave and after that I became the “MST group secretary”. My job is to support the group, with such varied issues as administrative procedures, finding a dentist or the MST retreat.
I enjoy my work, particularly meeting people from different cultures, the informal way we go about our daily business and the great sense of humour many in our group posses. No day is boring, there is always something new to do and learn.
And of course there is one more, really important task I have: to make sure that the biscuit and candy jars are full!
