Marianna Dafčíková is a recent master's graduate of physics, majoring in Astrophysics. She received the Dean's Award in the category of Best Student of Bachelor's and Master's Degree Program. Her work has contributed significantly to the operation of the GRBAlpha satellite and the analysis and interpretation of data from the GRBAlpha and VZLUSAT-2 nano-satellites. She analyzed and interpreted data of observed gamma-ray bursts and charged particles in the orbit of these satellites. To date, as the first author she has published 96 GCN circulars in the GCN Bulletin. She has also co-authored two papers in the prestigious journal Astronomy and Astrophysics and one in the Proceedings of SPIE.

Daniel Jadlovský is a PhD student of Astrophysics. He received the Dean's Award for the Best Student of Bachelor's and Master's Degree Programme. His thesis focuses on the photometric and spectroscopic variability of the red supergiant star Betelgeuse. He published the first results of his work in New Astronomy, which received eleven citations within a year of publication. The main part of the research was carried out during a stay at the Leibniz-Institut für Astrophysik Potsdam. The results of this fellowship were published in the prestigious journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. As one of three Czech students of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) - Visegrad Award, he stayed at the Budapest Observatory and modeled pulsating BLAP stars. He was also awarded a prestigious one-year internship by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, which allowed him to work scientifically at the headquarters of the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany. The graduate's scientific work shows that our students can obtain prestigious results even in the highly competitive and medialized fields of astrophysics.

Dr. Lukáš Kusýn is this year's PhD graduate in Plasma Physics. The results of his thesis have contributed to the clarification of mechanisms and quantification of parameters of several types of electrical discharges, with unique temporal and spatial resolution comparable to the outputs of numerical simulations. He has prepared five papers, three of which have already been published in the top journal in the field, Plasma Sources Science and Technology. The published result of his work on surface barrier discharge is one of his most significant contributions. During his studies, he received the prestigious Brno City scholarship, Ph.D. Talent, and a Masaryk University IGA selection grant. He completed research stays at leading institutions in Germany and the Netherlands, participated in meetings of leading experts in Bad Honnef, Germany, collaborated on three GACR projects, and successfully presented his results at several international conferences. He also participated in teaching students in the physics practicum for undergraduate courses.
