The first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Sentinel-5P, has been launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The 820 kg satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) today. The first stage separated 2 min 16 sec after liftoff, followed by the fairing and second stage at 3 min 3 sec and 5 min 19 sec, respectively. The upper stage then fired twice, delivering Sentinel-5P to its final orbit 79 min after liftoff. ...

The first full-scale model of the rocket motor that will propel Ariane 6 and Vega-C into orbit has been cast and filled with inert propellant for testing at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The P120C is the largest solid-propellant rocket motor ever built in one segment. Each P120C will hold over 140 tonnes of propellant in a carbon fibre casing almost 11.5 m long and about 3.4 m in diameter. It is derived from Vega's current first stage motor, the P80, which holds 88 tonnes of propell...

There's no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy -- they're so distant and faint compared to their stars, it's hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible signpost for giant exoplanets. A new study finds that giant exoplanets that orbit far from their stars are more likely to be found around young stars that have a disk of dust and debris than those without disks. The study, published in The Astronomical Journal, focused on ...

Astronomers have identified a bumper crop of dual supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. This discovery could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the Universe. The new evidence reveals five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun. These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their superma...

A molecule once thought to be a useful marker for life as we know it has been discovered around a young star and at a comet for the first time, suggesting these ingredients are inherited during the planet-forming phase. The discovery of methyl chloride was made by the ground-based Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile, and by ESA's Rosetta spacecraft following Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. It is the simplest member of a class of molecules known as organohalogens, whi...

Observations made with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and ESA's Rosetta mission, have revealed the presence of the organohalogen Freon-40 in gas around both an infant star and a comet. Organohalogens are formed by organic processes on Earth, but this is the first ever detection of them in interstellar space. This discovery suggests that organohalogens may not be as good markers of life as had been hoped, but that they may be significant components of the material from wh...

    Technical working experience in Canada’s Space Industry, which included opportunities to work with CSA, NASA, JAXA and ISRO.

    Knowledge of Space Station Program

    Academic research undertaken to develop technology enhancements for space-based applications.

    Public speaking experience which focused on inspiring Canadians to pursue an interest or study of science and technology.


    Ph.D. Computing and Information Science at the University of Guelph

    • Title:  A Method for Removing and Replacing Lighting Effects using Image Sequences
    • A method promoting automated image reconstruction given a same-scene set of degraded input images.  The method determines appropriate technique(s) using reconstruction goals and characteristics, and creates a reconstructed image of the scene for each technique selected.  The method ranks the reconstructed images to determine which one is most likely to represent the actual scene.


    Masters of Science, Computing and Information Science at University of Guelph

    • Thesis:  Spherical Panoramic Video – The Space Ball
    • The Spherical Panoramic Video camera was designed as an enhancement to NASA’s SPRINT robotic ball.  The concept was to design and develop the prototype of a panoramic video camera that can gaze in 360 degrees but contains no moving parts.  The Pan/Tilt mechanism of the system was driven completely by software.   This would provide a safer exterior inspection tool for the Space Shuttle and Space Station as changing the field of view would not require motion of the robot in any way.


    Bachelor of Science, Applied Computer Science from Ryerson Polytechnic University

    • Thesis:  Autonomous Navigation for Indoor Mobile Robotics
