Dr. Bogdan Teaca

Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics

My Research Vision

My main research interests are related to the physics of turbulence, understanding its nature, developing mathematical and numerical models for practical applications and formulating a theoretical formalism that would be both rigorous and easy to understand. I have studied turbulence for nonconductive fluids, for magnetohydrodynamic flows and hot plasmas, both in the fluid and the kinetic limit relevant to astrophysical and fusion reactors conditions. While these fields of research seem different, similar approaches to the problem of turbulence can be devised and the knowledge gained provides for an ever-deeper understanding of the underlying physics.


Dr. Bogdan Teaca is a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Coventry University. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2010, jointly, from Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium and University of Craiova, Romania, with the thesis titled "Numerical simulations of transport processes in magnetohydrodynamic turbulence." From 2010 and until 2012, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the field of plasma physics at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, supported by a CSCS-HP2C supercomputing project. Following that and until his appointment as a Senior Lecturer, he worked as a researcher at Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics Germany where he was supported by the Max-Planck/Princeton Center for Plasma Physics, with which he collaborates to this day.



  • Max-Planck/Princeton Research Center for Plasma Physics: It represents an on-going research collaboration hosted by several Max Planck Institutes in Germany, Princeton University and Princeton Plasma Physics Lab in USA. It promotes collaborations between astrophysicists and fusion scientists, as a mean to accelerate discovery in fundamental areas of plasma physics. While not being part of the host institutions, B. Teaca is an affiliate member of the centre.
  • THOR - Turbulence Heating ObserveR: THOR is a mission proposal, selected as candidate for the European Space Agency's next M4 mission (expected to fly in 2026). It seeks to address one of the most fundamental but also one of the least understood physical processes in the universe: turbulent energy dissipation and particle energization. B. Teaca is part of the science team that supports this project.
  • Large resolution direct numerical simulations of gyrokinetic turbulence. A Helios supercomputer project (ITER & BA agreement) supported by the International Fusion Energy Research Centre (IFERC-CSC), in the field of Magnetic Confinement Fusion.
