Personal profile


Ondrej Kucera is an electrical engineer turned biophysicist. He studies self-organisation and dynamic behaviour in living and life-like synthetic systems, with a particular interest in cytoskeletal protein polymers. His approach integrates engineering, experimental techniques, biochemistry, data processing, and computer modelling. Ondrej has contributed to over 20 studies, including recent work on the emergence of structural memory in cytoskeletal composites (Kucera et al., PNAS 2022), myosin-independent contractility in actin networks (Kucera et al., Nature Communications 2021), and microtubule stabilisation by compressive forces (Li et al., Nature Materials 2023). He has received the Siemens Excellence Award and is a frequent speaker at international conferences.
