Bara Buhnova is an Associate Professor and vice-dean for industrial partners at Masaryk University (MU), Faculty of Informatics in Brno. She received her Ph.D. degree in computer science in 2008 in the Czech Republic, continued as a postdoc researcher in Germany and Australia, and now she leads multiple research teams at Faculty of Informatics MU (teams on software architecture, smart cities), the Institute of Computer Science MU (team on big data analytics), and Czech CyberCrime Centre of Excellence C4e (team on critical infrastructures). She is the Steering Committee chair of the ICSA conference (leading conference on Software Architecture), and acts as a reviewer and editor in multiple scientific journals (including some of the most prestigous journals in software engineering). Next to her academic activities, she is the chair of the Association of Industrial Partners of Masaryk University, Faculty of Informatics (with 30 companies), and is a Co-Founding and Governing Board member of Czechitas, a non-profit organisation aiming at making IT skills more accessible to youth and women of any age (reaching to 15,000+ graduates). Although being Czech, she drinks no beer, and hopes that she will not be blamed if Czech falls from the world top in beer consumption - but this will never happen ;).
