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 a PhD in Flow Control in Aeronautics at the ‘Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery – Polish Academy of Sciences” in 2015. He joined Cranfield University as Research Fellow in Propulsion Aerodynamics in 2017. Fernando is currently working as Lecturer in Propulsion Systems Design and is involved in several research programmes. He is the module leader of Thermofluids course within the Pre-master's in Engineering and lectures the CFD for Gas Turbines module within the Thermal Power MSc.

Fernando has published +35 peer-reviewed journal publications, conference papers and book chapters. He has also filed 4 patents.

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 & INNOVATE UK projects.
