I obtained my MEng and BEng degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Harbin Institute of Technology, China. I started my PhD at Politecnico di Milano in the COMPASS team in November 2016. My research topic is “Geometry and Mission Integrated Design for Continuous Global Coverage Constellations”, from modelling to optimisation, and including all phases within the constellation operation. I am interested in solving challenging problems such as inner-constellation collision avoidance for the upcoming large constellations.
Current research within COMPASS
- Constellation geometry design
- Low-thrust trajectory design for large constellations (orbit raising and de-orbiting)
- Rapid attitude manoeuvres for multibody spacecraft
