Xiaodong Lu

I started PhD in the COMPASS team at Politecnico di Milano from November 2020. My research topic is on analytical approach leveraging perturbation for post mission disposal manoeuvre design, including developing and improving semi-analytical orbital propagators, phase space study of the long-term orbit dynamics, and analytical computation of the post mission disposal manoeuvre with the help of semi-analytical models and phase space description. I obtained MSc in Aerospace Engineering in July 2020 from Harbin Institute of Technology, China.

Current research within COMPASS
