Marek Wolf (b. 30 June 1957) is a Czech astronomer, currently (as of March 2010) the head the Astronomický ústav, Univerzita Karlova v Praze (Astronomical Institute, Charles University of Prague).[2]

He is a discoverer of several asteroids between 1995 and 2001, mostly in collaboration with Czech astronomers Lenka Kotková and Petr Pravec. The Minor Planet Center credits his discoveries under M. Wolf: he is sometimes confused with Max Wolf (1863–1932), a German astronomer and a very famous asteroid hunter who is credited as M. F. Wolf.[1]
