Dr. Kosovic is the Program Manager for Renewable Energy at the Research Applications Laboratory (RAL) of NCAR. He joined NCAR in 2009 after seven years at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Dr. Kosovic also worked at the California Institute of Technology, University of California at Davis, and University of Colorado at Boulder. He has been involved in research and development activities in atmospheric transport and dispersion, turbulence simulations and modeling and atmospheric boundary layer simulations for renewable energy applications.

Dr. Kosovic received Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado, M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Penn State University, and B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Rijeka, Croatia.

Dr. Kosovic focuses on studies of flow, transport, and dispersion in atmospheric boundary layers using large-eddy simulations. He specialized in subgrid modeling of turbulence in stably-stratified flows. He also worked on inverse problems using nonlinear optimization and Bayesian inference with stochastic sampling. He is currently working on extending multiscale modeling capabilities in the Weather Research and Forecasting model for wind energy applications.
