Jaroslav Urbar is a PhD student at the Charles University in Prague,
focusing on the solar wind-magnetosphere interaction. He has designed
and lead the student experiment on stratospheric balloon project
gathering the Cosmic Ray Induced Ionization atmospheric measurements
by image pattern recognition from the Medipix family of radiation
imaging detectors as part of his Master thesis at LTU in Kiruna.
