Before joining Oxford, Prof Rosic was a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) senior research fellow and college lecturer in engineering at Girton College, University of Cambridge.He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, where he also worked as a researcher in the turbomachinery and power plants group (faculty of mechanical engineering). During that time he was involved in research and consultancy of steam turbine related problems, and power plant monitoring and performance tests. He undertook his Ph.D. research at the University of Cambridge’s Whittle Laboratory in collaboration with Siemens Power Generation under the supervision of Dr. John Douglas Denton. He investigated, experimentally and numerically, the aerodynamics of low aspect ratio turbines and leakage flows, and earned his Ph.D. in 2005. Prof Rosic has been an ASME member since 2002 and has served on IGTI’s Turbomachinery Committee since 2004.  He was a recipient of ASME’s 2006 Gas Turbine Award and again  in 2011, he was recognized for the co-authored paper titled “Controlling Tip Leakage Flow Over a Shrouded Turbine Rotor Using an Air-Curtain.” He received ASME’s Gas Turbine Award.The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the literature of combustion gas turbines or gas turbines thermally combined with nuclear or steam power plants. It was presented to Dr. Rosic  in Vancouver, British Columbia.

He is a tutorial fellow at Oxford’s St. Anne’s College.
