Matteo Ceriotti received his MSc summa cum laude from Politecnico di Milano (Italy)
in 2006 with a thesis on planning and scheduling for planetary exploration. In 2010, he received his PhD on “Global Optimisation of Multiple Gravity Assist Trajectories” from the Department of Aerospace Engineering of the University of Glasgow (United Kingdom).During 2009-2012, Matteo was a Research Fellow at the Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, leading the research theme“Orbital Dynamics of Large Gossamer Spacecraft”. In 2012, he returned to the University of Glasgow as a Lecturer in Space Systems Engineering, within the School of Engineering.
His main research interests are space mission analysis and trajectory design, orbital dynamics, trajectory optimisation, particularly focusing on high area-to-mass ratio structures. As of 2018, he has published 45 journal articles and 6 chapters in edited books. He is a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
