Jana Roithová studies as yet undescribed chemical reactions in an attempt to discover the underlying general principles of chemical reactivity. Her work lays the foundations for progress in chemistry and paves the way for constructing new complex molecules and materials. Roithová is renowned for developing new mass spectroscopic techniques to study chemical reactions in the gas phase. She combines her observations with analyses and computational models. In addition to her research, Roithová is a dedicated educator and a much sought-after speaker at conferences and universities. She also advises the government in both the Netherlands and her native Czech Republic on science policy.
