As part of her studies in anthropology and experimental biology, Lucie Ráčková focused on researching prenatal stress and its connection with the psychological characteristics of offspring in adulthood. She is currently a PhD student in Environmental Physiology at RECETOX MU, focusing on human stress research in isolation experiments. She has investigated stress among university employees during a pandemic, in polar explorers in Antarctica, and on several mock space missions. She herself participated in one mission as an analogue astronaut. In addition to stress research, she is interested in the relationship between humans, robots, and the environment.
