Radek Honzik

radek-4-1.jpgRadek Honzik joined the Prague College staff in 2012, teaching advanced databases with an additional focus on the logical structure of programming and query languages. He is the holder of two Master's degrees - in General Mathematics and the English language, and Logic and Computational Linguistics. He also has a Ph.D. from the Charles University Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, where his dissertation dealt with problems in abstract mathematics (set theory). His research interests include advanced topics in set theory (on which he has published papers in several significant mathematical journals).
