Projects per year
Christopher is a Research Fellow in the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, and has been with the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering since 2011. His research is focused on the design and exploitation of distributed space networks, such as constellations and federated satellite systems. Particular areas of interest are the routing of data through delay- and disruption-tolerant networks, and efficient utilisation of available resources within distributed systems.
Christopher is also involved in a number of industrial collaborations, including development of the NANOBED Missions Laboratory with Clyde Space Ltd and Bright Ascension Ltd, and development of novel cycle route planning with Beinn Bike Ltd.
Prior to joining the University of Strathclyde, Christopher obtained his Undergraduate Degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2007, and Masters Degree in Space Systems Engineering in 2008, from the University of Southampton. In November 2008, Christopher joined Magna Parva Ltd, where he worked as a Design Engineer on a number of European Space Agency missions, including ExoMars and BepiColombo.
Christopher is research-active, and interested in forming collaborations that involve:
- Resource-considerate data-routing through DTNs
- Satellite constellation design and analysis
- Space system modelling and simulation
Please get in touch using the details above, should you wish to work with together.
