Robin Tuluie, PhD

About Robin

Robin is the founder and vice chairman of PhysicsX. He leads the business across science and engineering in his role as CSEO, and our board’s technology strategy.  

PhysicsX is dedicated to building deep learning and simulation solutions to unlock breakthrough engineering performance to benefit humanity. Robin is passionate about growing a company and culture committed to these goals.

Robin believes that to solve the urgent climate and industrial challenges we face, AI must help reconceive how engineering is practiced – to deliver valuable outcomes which accelerate renewables adoption, reduce energy and materials consumption and create performance efficiencies across advanced, non-military industries.

A theoretical physicist by background, Robin discovered a foundational new effect, by simulation, in the cosmic background radiation - his initial simulation work subsequently confirmed by the Nobel-prize winning COBE satellite measurement. Robin left academia for the fastest development cycle on earth, Formula One. He was Head of R&D at Renault (Alpine) F1, where he developed groundbreaking innovations that helped the team win back-to-back double World Championships. In 2011 he joined the Mercedes F1 team as Chief Scientist and Head of R&D, developing innovations with multi-physics simulation tools and machine learning optimizations, and helped build one of the most successful F1 teams of all time. After two more world titles with Mercedes, Robin joined Bentley Motors as Vehicle Technology Director, responsible for the overall simulation strategy and digital twin roadmap, while advancing simulation with Ducati MotoGP and across the Volkswagen Group, before founding PhysicsX in 2019.
