selected publications


courses taught

  • ASEN 3200 - Orbital Mechanics/Attitude Dynamics and Control
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Presents the fundamentals of orbital mechanics, 3D rigid body dynamics and satellite attitude dynamics and controls.
  • ASEN 6008 - Interplanetary Mission Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Summer 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Spring 2021 / Summer 2021
    Exploration of principles and methods related to the design and construction of trajectories for interplanetary mission design. Some topics covered include: two-and three-body motion, gravity assists, maneuver computation, navigation, numerical integration, and construction of orbits. The main focus is on simple ballistic mission designs, such as Galileo or Cassini, however, libration point trajectories will also be covered. Recommended prerequisite: ASEN 5050 or instructor consent required.
