Short online CV
works at the Institute of Computer Science on the characterization of spatiotemporal patterns in real-world complex dynamical systems. He focuses on the study of spontaneous brain activity, both with neuroimaging methods such as fMRI, EEG or MEG and models of mathematical neuroscience. Recently he started studying other complex systems such as global climate.
JH currently serves as the Head of newly established Department of Nonlinear Dynamics and Complex Systems.
During his PhD in Nottingham (UK), Jaroslav investigated spontanteous brain activity with a range of methods spanning from analysis of multimodal neuroimaging resting-state human volunteer data (EEG-fMRI) to mathematical models of interacting neural populations. The PhD thesis is available on request.
