Natasa Vulic is a postdoctoral researcher in urban energy systems with a PhD in Electrical Engineering and more than six years of research experience. She has an interdisciplinary background in energy systems, and demonstrated skills in data analysis, visualization, modeling and simulation.

During her graduate studies, she broadened her perspective on the technological, economic, and policy challenges of transitioning to renewable energy as part of a highly-selective interdisciplinary program IGERT: SUN. Her doctoral thesis focused on a more fundamental aspect of solar energy generation, where she utilized both experimental and computational methods to conduct in-depth research on ways to improve solar cell performance, while keeping the big picture in mind. Prior to this, she received concurrent BSc degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Sustainability.
