Callum Wilson

Callum Wilson is a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde and is part of the ICELab research group within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. His research topic is intelligent control for onboard spacecraft control with a focus on reinforcement learning techniques. While the focus of his undergraduate studies was in mechanical engineering, through several research projects he gained experience in machine learning for control applications which led on to his current PhD research. Learning forms an important part of intelligent control which combines theories from the fields of automatic controls, operations research, and artificial intelligence. With his research, Callum aims to exploit intelligent control methods for space applications to optimise spacecraft’s performance and safely explore unknown environments.
