  • Fabrication of microrobotic devices by 2-photon polymerization, their moving by laser traps.
  • Control of Holographic Optical Tweezers via natural user interface (hands and fingers, voice, gaze).
  • Particles tracking and their automated optical micromanipulation (path finding, sorting, measurement).

Image analysis and stereology

  • Image analysis of microscopic samples (optical , confocal, AFM, TEM).
  • 3D image analysis and stereology (quantitative analysis and measurement in 3D, unbiased stereological methods).
  • Segmentation of images in 2D and 3D, machine learning methods.


  • Computer vision lectures (Institute of Computer Science, P.J. Safarik University in Kosice).
  • Supervisor of PhD M.Sc and Bc. students (Technical University and Safarik University in Kosice).

Other activities

  • Development of the interactive exhibits for the "Steel Park " science center in Kosice.
