I have experience overseeing the curriculum, operation and development of large (1000+) undergraduate programmes as well as teaching a range of classes, from a large introductory mechanics class of 350 students to overseeing the dissertation projects of over 180 4th year students.
Through Student Voice, I have curated a large library of case studies covering HE teaching best practices. A selection of these can be found on the Student Voice Blog.
My research involves precise orbit determination and force modelling of spacecraft and space debris as well as applying machine learning techniques to help improve teaching.
Angles-only navigation in the proximity of a binary asteroid system
Journal of Guidance, Control and Dynamics
Deep Space and the Impact of Space Debris on Communication Networks
Demonstrating developments in high-fidelity analytical radiation force modelling methods for spacecraft with a new model for GPS IIR/IIR-M
Journal of Geodesy
I also give public lectures and run a number of public engagement activites centred around 3D printing and space debris for those who are traditionally under-represented in engineering.
Summer 2020 Outreach Resources
As we unfortunately cannot run any in person outreach activities this summer i've made all my resources available here for those who are interested.
Young Weir-Wise 2020
Discovering Engineering with S2 Girls. As usual I had a great time and continue to be impressed by how curious and engaged these students are.
Engineering the Future for Girls 2019
We ran sessions today again for the Engineering the Future for Girls summer school. Thanks to all of our undergraduate students who came in to help.
