Replicated ROA Analysis

I replicated nonlinear region of attraction analysis completed by Chakraborty et al for a graduate nonlinear controls course project. While the estimation methods were not replicated, the polynomial approximation was replicated with Python, and the results were summarized in a technical paper. The polynomial dynamics have since been ported to Julia with PolynomialGTM.jl.

Manifold Transfers

I investigated low-cost manifold-based interplanetary transfer designs as part of a graduate astrodynamics course project. The results were summarized in a final paper. This investigation is ongoing! I'm expecting to produce a follow up paper with calculation corrections, and new results, in 2022. As part of this project, a list of thousands of initial conditions for periodic orbits in our solar system was published on GitHub!
