Contact Dr Buchan Schreiner


Dr Buchan 'Neys' Schreiner is a Research Fellow in the Low Emissions Technologies and Combustion Group in the Centre for Propulsion and Thermal Power Engineering. He joined Cranfield in 2019 and has undertaken research in external aerodynamics, shape optimisation, rotorcraft and gas turbine performance, and novel fuels. He has been involved in a range of projects including: ANACO, FANTASIA, FASTRIP2050, UTOPEA, and ONEHeart.


Neys completed his PhD at the University of Bath in 2019, researching the internal aerodynamics of gas turbines, specifically the interaction of main and purge gas flows. Prior to this, he studied an MSc in Computation Fluid Dynamics at Cranfield (2014-15). His undergraduate degree is from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (South Africa), where he obtained a First Class pass.
