Julian D. Osorio is a research engineer in the Energy Conversion and Storage Systems Center at NREL. Previously, he was an intern at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) doing research related with concentrated solar supercritical carbon dioxide cycles thermal–electrical co-simulation, and materials for solar energy applications. He returned to Colombia and joined the University of Medellin as a full-time professor from January 2017 to November 2018, where he taught thermodynamics, power generation cycles, heat transfer, and renewable energy seminars courses. From November 2018 to July 2019, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at INL. He joined NREL in July 2019, where he is working as a research engineer.
