Jan Přech obtained his master’s (engineer’s) degree from University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague in 2012. For his Ph.D., he joined the group of Prof. Jiří Čejka at J.Heyrovský institute of physical chemistry of ASCR. He obtained Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 2016 for a study on synthesis and modifications of 2-dimensional titanosilicates in selective oxidation catalysis. Then Jan Přech, joined Laboratory of Catalysis and Spectrochemictry at Universite de Normandie in Caen (France) in the group of Dr. Valentin Valtchev working on synthesis of metal-zeolite composite catalysts for 18 months. Jan Přech obtained the Jean-Marie Lehn prize in Chemistry 2016 for the best Ph.D. thesis and several conference awards.

At present (2018) he is member of the CUCAM project team at Charles University in Prague. His current research interests include synthesis, characterisation and application of Lewis acidic zeolite based catalysts, 2-dimensional zeolites and zeolite catalysed reactions in Fine Chemistry.

Jan Přech is a co-author more than 30 publications in international impacted journals (ResearcherID F-6733-2014, H-index 11). Highlights of research: (two short sentences about what you are doing)
