Proj Scientist III

Stefano Alessandrini is currently a Project Scientist III and science deputy director of the Weather System Assessment Program (WSAP) with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder, Colorado. His main research areas of interest are wind and solar energy probabilistic forecasting, application of air pollution models, environmental physics, turbulence, mesoscale modeling. He has published more than 50 articles regarding probabilistic forecasting of renewable energies and stochastic Lagrangian particle models. He earned a Laurea (M.S.) in Physics with Summa Cum Laude from the University of Milano, Italy (1996), and his Ph.D. at the University of Piemonte Orientale (Italy) (2011) with a topic regarding Lagrangian particle models. Before joining NCAR, he has worked for 12 years in Italy at RSE (Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico) carrying out research activities on mesoscale modeling and probabilistic forecasting of renewable energies. in 2013, he has been the Italian representative for the European Cost action “WIRE” (Weather Intelligence for Renewable Energies).
