Welcome to my personal website! Before you start to explore this website, a short introduction of myself. My name is Jian GUO, or GUO Jian according to Modern Chinese Name system. I am currently an Associate Professor of Space Systems Engineering in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), the biggest (probably also the best) aerospace educational institute in Europe. Meanwhile, I am also the Theme Leader of Distributed Space Systems in TU Delft Space Institute.
In addition to my daily job, I am servicing in various international academic organizations, such as the co-chair of the Small Satellite Missions Committee of International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), a member of the Technical Committee of ESA/CNES 4S Symposium, etc. I received my BSc, MSc from Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU) in Xián, China and PhD from the University of Leeds in England, respectively.
I have made direct contributions to numerous international small satellite missions including Tsinghua, Delfi (TU Delft) and Aoxiang (NWPU) satellites. From research point of view, my interest is primarily on Spacecraft Guidance, Navigation & Control (GNC) / Autonomy and their applications in distributed space systems, including formation flying, on-orbit servicing and space debris removal.
On this website, you can find out some hopefully useful information about my research, for example a detailed description of my application-driven research and results, a complete list (including links if available) of my recent publications, and links to public accessible resources including open-source codes resulted from my research (still under construction). You will also be able to be connected with current and former members of my small research team.
