- 1. Bayesian robotics: Space Micro Rovers and Multiple Micro Rovers cooperation work using Bayesian Theory. The overall aim of this research is to develop, analyse and test micro rovers for planetary mission and algorithms.
- 2. Micro-Rover Navigation.
- 3. Computer Vision: SLAM techniques from multiple-view geometry for self-localization and recognition of scene features using point clouds.
- 4. Mission design using nanosatellites [Particular items of this section are: a.New sensors, actuators, OBC, ADCS, and propulsion systems b. Space Inspection and Autonomy using nanosatellites c. missions using nanosatellites]
- 5. Flight Mechanics, Modeling, Simulation, Attitude & Orbit Control a. Invariant Manifold Dynamics b. Low Thrust Non-Keplerian Orbits c. Coupled Attitude-Orbit Dynamics d. Asteroid and Binary Asteroids Missions e. Solar sails and aerodynamics sails for deorbiting and deep space exploration
- 6. Agricultural Robotics: Automated farm monitoring and care using autonomous robotics

I am currently looking for motivated Master students, Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers in the areas of sensor fusion for space robotics, probabilistic machine learning and reasoning for robotics, deep learning for satellites' FPGA based real time embedded acceleration, dynamics and control of spacecraft and space robotics, and structural design and mobility for planetary rover.
One fully funded PhD studentship starting in the 2019/2020 academic year. These studentships will cover the tuition fee at the UK/EU rate and a stipend at the standard research council rate for a period of 3 years. International candidates are also welcome to apply but will be required to pay the difference between the UK/EU and international tuition fee rates.
