Projects per year
Ruaridh is an engineer and network researcher who investigates influence and division in dynamical systems. His work often exists at the boundary between disciplines, and has led to publications on Alzheimer’s disease, bird flocks, disease spread, image processing, robotic and satellite systems. This diverse portfolio informs his study of networks and offers opportunities to transfer innovation between domains. His current work includes developing design tools for the next generation of satellite constellations with AAC Clyde Space, mapping tidal channels on a European Space Agency (ESA) funded project, and monitoring child neurodevelopment through tablet gameplay – with a focus on Autism.
Ruaridh has a background in the development of space technology and research into its applications. This includes delivering a three-year horizon scanning activity for the UK Space Agency, which assessed the potential of future space technology, and leading the development of a sounding rocket experiment for four years as part of ESA's REXUS programme.
