Contact Dr Tom-Robin Teschner

Areas of expertise

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Vehicle Aerodynamics


Dr Teschner is an experienced aerospace and software engineer working in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). He received his BEng in Aerospace Engineering from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the University of Seville (Spain), along with his MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics and PhD in Aerospace from Cranfield University.

Dr Teschner has been awarded the Erich Becker scholarship for his contribution to the aerospace industry, as well as the Lord Kings Norton medal for his PhD research (best PhD thesis ranked among 151 graduates).

His research interests include applied aircraft aerodynamics (laminar flow promoting designs, transition modelling), vehicle aerodynamics (high-performance vehicles), as well as algorithmic research to reduce computational costs of CFD solvers through hybrid CFD and deep-learning.

Before joining Cranfield, Dr Teschner was a software engineer developing a commercial CFD solver at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), working in particular on the high-resolution discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for aeronautical applications in collaboration with Onera and Airbus.

Research opportunities

Dr Teschner main area of research are in the field of applied aerodynamics (vehicle and aerospace applications) as well as algorithmic design to reduce the cost of Computational Fluid Dynamics solvers (through hybrid CFD/deep-learning applications).

Past research projects included:

- Investigation of laminar flow-promiting aircraft designs through transition-based turbulence modelling using CFD

- Investigation of surface roughness on transition in deep-dynamic stall applications

- Investigation of high-performance vehicles with asymmetric wing loading

- Detection of vortices in CFD simulations through deep learning
