I am a visiting researcher from Mendel University in Brno, Czechia. I am currently researching methods of plagiarism detection and explicit semantic analysis. I am especially interested in the application of text similarity in the social sciences.

At my home university, I am an academic integrity coordinator at the Faculty of Business and Economics. I am also President of the Board of the European Network for Academic Integrity.

I have been researching issues surrounding plagiarism since 2008, e.g. in the projects "Impact of policies for plagiarism in higher education across Europe" and "South-East European Project on Policies for Academic Integrity". I have also been organizing conferences and workshops on plagiarism since 2013. I am a member of the Steering group of Pan-European Platform for Ethics, Transparency and Integrity in Education established by the Council of Europe and main coordinator of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships project "European Network for Academic Integrity".
