Dr Eric Lo


I graduated from the University of Manchester for my PhD in transonic and supersonic aerodynamics in 2014. I then moved to the University of Glasgow to become a post-doctoral research assistant to work on supersonic wind tunnel design and development and automotive aerodynamics research. In 2017, I moved to the University of Surrey as a Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering. After spending 5 years at the university, I joined the University of Leeds as a Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering in September, 2022. I am the current programme manager of the Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering programme and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
