My primary research interests are the mineralogy and petrology of granites and pegmatites and related rare metal (Li, Sn, W, In, Nb, Ta, REE), gemstone and industrial mineral deposits (quartz, feldspar, mica, fluorite). The concept of my studies is the genetic mineralogy explaining the diversity of minerals on Earth and how and why they are formed in certain environments. The continuous thread of my research is the chemistry and mineralogy of quartz which is one of the most common minerals in the Earth crust and a crucial industrial mineral, for example, for the production of solar cells and microchips. The applied mineralogy is an important part of my studies explaining which and how minerals are used for manufacturing items we use in our daily life. I am working closely with the national and international mining and mineral processing industry. I am also engaged in research related to the history of geosciences.
