I am researcher in the department Algebra, Geometry and Mathematical Physics of the Institute of Mathematics at the Czech Academy of the Sciences (CAS) in Prague.
My research is about mathematical theory building in theoretical fundamental physics. With Hisham Sati we have edited a survey book that should give a good sense of modern insights into the general abstract structure of the world:
I am writing a monograph about this subject:
In spring 2015 I was teaching a seminar on
A list of notes prepared for seminars that I taught in the past is here
A personal wiki with more information on my research, talks, students, teaching and other activity is here:

Here is the video recording of a sample research talk that I have given recently:
Fractures, Ideles and the Differential Hexagon, talk at CUNY workshop on differential cohomologies, New York, August 2014 (video recording)
I like to put information into context. For that purpose I had started the
in November 2008. It has now more than 11,000 pages (some very short, but some very long). In May 2015 the $n$Lab installation migrated from a server paid out of my pocket to a server hosted at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, funded by Steve Awodey’s MURI grant for homotopy type theory research.
For more on what the $n$Lab is see also

I am writing an irregular column at PhysicsForums. Recent articles in the series include these:
Higher prequantum geometry I: The need for prequantum geometry
Higher prequantum geometry II: The principle of extremal action – Comonadically
Higher prequantum geometry III: The global action functional – Cohomologically
Higher prequantum geometry IV: The covariant phase space – Transgressively
Higher prequantum geometry V: The local observables – Lie theoretically
