Tomáš is a PhD student studying hot atmospheres of elliptical galaxies and their radio-mechanical AGN feedback. As a part of his Master thesis, he studied the connection between supermassive black holes in centres of early-type galaxies and radio lobes or surface brightness depressions (X-ray cavities) inflated into their atmospheres.
He examines also the applications of machine learning techniques in Astrophysics. During his Master studies he produced a machine learning pipeline (CADET) consisting of a convolutional neural network (CNN) and a clustering algorithm, which was trained for finding X-ray cavities on Chandra images of galaxies.
He is also interested in SPH simulations of clusters of galaxies. For his Bachelor thesis, he produced a hydrodynamical simulation of a Virgo like cluster using the parallelised cosmological code GADGET-2.
