Background and Research Interests:

Dr. Srdjan V. Belošević was born on November 24th, 1967 in Belgrade, Serbia. He is Research Professor in the Laboratory for Thermal Engineering and Energy of the Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences, University of Belgrade. He graduated at the Aeronautical Department, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Belgrade, on January 25th, 1993. On November 5th, 2003, he got his Ph.D. degree, with the thesis entitled "A contribution to the modeling of processes in a pulverized coal-fired boiler furnace", at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Belgrade.

His research covers various fields, such as: mathematical modeling of two-phase turbulent flows with heat/mass transfer, development of 3D computer codes, turbulence, de-NOx/de-SOx methods in utility boilers, pulverized coal/biomass (co)combustion, clean coal technologies, energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, solid fuel-fired household furnaces, fluidized bed combustion, aerodynamics.


He has published more than 170 scientific papers and technical solutions (co-author of one Serbian patent in the field of biomass conversion), including papers in leading international journals, with h-index: 14, i10-index: 20 and 780 citations (Google Scholar); h-index: 11 and over 500 citations/380 heterocitations (Scopus).
