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 to large-scale tropical variability. One of my main research topics is data assimilation modelling and, in particular, the modelling of the background-error covariances with focus on balance issues. I am applying the normal-mode function representation to understand the atmospheric energetics, the global unbalanced circulation, its numerical modeling and data assimilation.
