Franz Teschl
Institute of Communication Networks and Satellite Communications, TU Graz, Austria

Franz Teschl studied Telecommunication Engineering at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz), Austria. He received his Master and PhD degrees in 2001 and 2005, respectively. From 2003 to 2014, he was a researcher in the Weather Radar and Microwave Propagation Group of TU Graz. From 2007 to 2014, he was also senior scientist at the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies at JOANNEUM RESEARCH, Graz. Since 2014, he holds a tenure track research and teaching position at the Institute of Communication Networks and Satellite Communications at TU Graz, and since that time he is also member of the OPS-SAT project team – an ESA nanosatellite mission devoted to demonstrating improved mission control capabilities. Franz Teschl’s research interests are focused on satellite communications systems, tropospheric wave propagation and antennas, satellite-to-indoor/satellite-to-mobile propagation as well as precipitation modelling. He is author / co-author of more than 50 papers in international journals and conference proceedings in these areas. Franz Teschl was a visiting scientist at Politecnico di Milano, Italy (Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria) during summer/autumn 2015 and 2016. Since 2012 he is an Austrian delegate in the Study Group 3 (Radiowave Propagation) of the International Telecomunication Union. He is deputy head of the URSI Austria Commission C - Radio Communication and Signal Processing Systems.
