Welcome to my homepage!


I am an associate professor of meteorology at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Ljubljana.

I received my BSc and MSc in physics/atmospheric physics from the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Zagreb and my PhD from the Department of Meteorology at the Stockholm University . The title of my doctoral dissertation was "Dynamical aspects of atmospheric data assimilation in the tropics". My post-doctoral fellowship was awarded by the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado, where I worked on the large-scale dynamics and data assimilation.

My research interests range from modelling the mid-latitude mesoscale weather for the purpose of numerical weather prediction to large-scale tropical variability and data assimilation. One of my main research topics is the modelling of the background-error covariances for data assimilation. I am applying data assimilation methods to address problems of interest for understanding general circulation and its numerical modelling. More information about ongoing projects and collaborations is available on related pages.

I am teaching several courses at the Bacherol, Master and PhD level at the University of Ljubljana including atmospheric thermodynamics, dynamical meteorology, weather analysis and forecasting and general circulation.

My services include an associate editorship of the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society .
