Prof. RNDr. Ondřej Santolík, Dr.
After obtaining a PhD in physics of plasmas and ionized media from Charles University in Prague and a Ph.D. in physics from Universite d'Orleans, Orleans, France, Ondřej Santolík worked as an Assistant Professor at the Charles University in Prague and as a Research Scientist at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. In 1999–2001 he worked as a postdoctoral associate in CNRS Orléans and as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Iowa. In 2007 he moved to Universite d'Orleans again as a Visiting Professor.
In 2014 he became a Professor at the Charles University. He now serves as a Head of the Department of Space Physics at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and as a Head of the Institute Board.
O. Santolík is active in physics of plasmas and in spacecraft data analysis and interpretation with a focus on plasma waves and related processes. Recent research topics include both linear and nonlinear wave emissions in space plasmas of the ionosphere and magnetosphere of the Earth, ionospheres and magnetospheres of planets of the Solar System, and interactions of waves and instabilities with plasma medium and energetic particles. He is a member of international teams of currently operating spacecraft missions of ESA and NASA and he also leads instrument development efforts of new scientific spacecraft projects. O. Santolík is the author or co-author of 240 scientific articles in refereed journals with 4500 citations and with an h-index of 37. In 2014 he obtained the Praemium Academiae award from the Czech Academy of Sciences.
