I’m a scientist, founder, and author. I study water-wave physics in hurricane conditions with Prof. Brian Haus in the SUSTAIN lab at the University of Miami, supported by the National Science Foundation. I’m also building Cloudrun with my friend and cofounder Josh Noe. Cloudrun is a SaaS platform for on demand and custom numerical weather prediction. I’m also writing a book on parallel Fortran programming with Manning Publications.
I grew up and went to school in Serbia before coming to Miami in 2009 for grad school. I worked as a tattoo artist in Belgrade from 2007 to 2009. During my PhD, I worked with teams from US Navy and NASA on building and improving Earth system prediction models. You can find all my papers here. After graduating, I stayed in academia but started thinking about how to make viable businesses from science. I enjoy doing many things – it makes life more interesting for me. I currently live in Boca Raton, Florida, with my wife Evelyn.
I’m here to help. My formal expertise is in wave physics, parallel computing and Earth system model development, but you can ask me anything. I’m interested in computer science, weather and ocean prediction, cloud computing, entrepreneurship in science, remote work and work-life harmony. I answer all emails and would love to hear from you.
