Andrej Pavlovič is an associated professor in the Department of Biophysics at the Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic. He received his Ph.D. in plant physiology from the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia. In 2015, he defended his habilitation thesis entitled: Cost/benefit model for the evolution of botanical carnivory: from molecules to ecology. His research has focused on photosynthesis, digestive enzymes and nutrient uptake in carnivorus plants. Currently, his main area of interest is regulation of digestive enzyme secretion in the carnivorous plants through electrical and jasmonate signalling. His second area of interest is regulation of light-independent chlorophyll biosynthesis in gymnospems. He is the author of ≈ 30 peer-reviewed papers, associate editor of journal Photosynthetica, and a national representative to The Federation of European Societies for Plant Biology (FESPB).
