Edmondo Minisci, PhD, is a Senior Lecturer in Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation at the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering of University of Strathclyde. He is affiliated to the Aerospace Centre of Excellence (ACE), and is the director of the Intelligent Computational Engineering Laboratory (ICE-Lab). Dr Minisci has 15+ years of experience in the field of model based analysis and design of mechanical systems/devices, and is currently involved in projects regarding: a) global optimization of trans-atmospheric and interplanetary trajectories, b) uncertainty based multidisciplinary design optimisation of space transportation systems, wind turbines and spacecraft, and c) modelling and simulation of (re-)entering space objects (space-debris and asteroids).
