Stuart Grey is a Lecturer in the Space Geodesy and Navigation Laboratory (SGNL) and works on a number of projects in Positioning, Navigation and Precise Orbit Determination.  Stuart Grey’s primary area of research is in the field of orbital mechanics, specifically the modelling of non-conservative forces on spacecraft and space debris.  He is developing a number of force models to better predict the orbits of scientific space missions and the evolution of the space debris environment.  Stuart obtained his MEng in Aerospace Engineering from Sheffield University before spending a number of years working in consultancy for the nuclear and defence industries. He then completed his PhD in Aerospace Engineering (Multi-Agent Systems for Autonomous Spacecraft) at the University of Glasgow.  He joined UCL in 2011 as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in SGNL and accepted a Lecturer position in the same group in 2013. He passed his postgraduate certificate in teaching and learning for higher and professional education at the Institute of Education and became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2015.
