Dr Fernando Tejero was awarded a 5-year full-time diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) in 2011. Upon the successful completion of his postgraduate studies, he became Marie Curie Fellow and pursued an honours PhD in Flow Control in Aeronautics at the ‘Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery – Polish Academy of Sciences” in 2015. Then he joined Cranfield University in 2017, where he is currently working in several research programmes and lectures on the topics of thermofluids and CFD for gas turbines.

Fernando is focused in the areas of fluid mechanics, numerical methods, gas turbine engine aerodynamics, multidisciplinary design optimization, computational fluid dynamics and machine learning. He has an international standing built upon a well-established research track record and has been involved in research projects within the FP7 EU and Horizon 2020 programmes as well as in different ATI projects.
