Dr. Petr Brož (1984) works as the researcher at the Department of Geodynamics from 2010, where he focus about the volcanism across the Solar system. He is mainly interested about  kilometer-sized cones formed by explosive volcanic activity caused by magma degassing and water/magma interactions on the surface of Mars. His research is based on the analysis of the remote sensing data from the morphological and morphometrical point of view.
