Filip Hrbáček, PhD

is an assistant professor at the Department of Geography, Masaryk University. He is a team leader of Geoscientific research group of Polar-Geo-Lab. His main research focus are on thermal variability of Antarctic permafrost and active layer, periglacial geomorphology and soil science. He participated five times on the expedition on James Ross Island.
