My research is focused on spatial patterns of electoral behaviour in Czechia. The voter decision-making process is very complex and influenced by many different factors. Both the individual characteristics of voters and the spatial context of the locality, where these voters live, play a key role. The aim of my research is to explain regional and local differences in the results of the Czech parliamentary elections with regard to the territorially heterogeneous structure of the population, the influence of particular candidates, especially their place of residence, and other contextual effects. I am also interested in the changes in electoral patterns from a spatial point of view, including the question of whether mobilization or conversion predominates in connection with the changes in electoral preferences at different scale levels.
