Our research covers a wide range of topics related to the geologic evolution of continental crust. We examine magmatic systems from migmatites through batholiths to volcanic processes at the Earth’s surface, with a particular focus on tectonic setting and emplacement of granite plutons, while other research has been directed towards dynamics of Precambrian accretionary wedges and mélange formation. We have pursued various tectonic studies in ancient collisional orogens and active margins in Europe, North America, and Antarctica. We enjoy a broad research network established with numerous colleagues from the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, and United States and integrate multiple methods including detailed field mapping, anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS), U–Pb geochronology, petrology, geochemistry, and numerical modeling.
