Jitka is a theoretical evolutionary ecologist. She combines analytical and numerical treatments to develop fundamental theory of coevolution of a species' range and niche, of species' connectivity and its limits, and of speciation.  She has obtained her PhD in Zoology in 2005 from the Charles University in Prague. During her studies and earlier postdoc years, she has worked at the University of Edinburgh, University of Knoxville, Tennessee and at the IST Austria.
In 2015 she has been awarded Elise Richter Fellowship at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Vienna to work on evolutionary ecology of species'’ ranges.
In 2019, she has obtained both her habilitation in Mathematical Biology and funding for a 4-year FWF Stand Alone Project: Causes and consequences of population fragmentation.
