Marianna Dafčíková
Office address  Department of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, Kotlářská 2, 602 00, Brno, Czech Republic
since 09/2022 MSc in Astrophysics
2019 - 2022 BSc in Astrophysics: “Modeling the Low Earth Orbit Particle Background of GRBAlpha using Space Weather Data” at Masaryk university, Brno, Czech republic; Supervisor: Mgr. Jean-Paul Breuer; Advisor: RNDr. Jakub Řípa, Ph.D.

Marianna is a Master student at Masaryk University working with data from the GRBAlpha and VZLUSAT-2 CubeSats. The main focus of her bachelor work was to study the effects of space weather events at low Earth orbit using observations from these nanosatellites, and to investigate the possibility of GRBAlpha's radio loss caused by solar energetic particles.

Besides the scientific analysis of the data, Marianna also participates in their acquisition by helping with operations of the GRBAlpha CubeSat.
