Dr. Mark A. Post

Mark A. Post, Ph.D. joined the University of Strathclyde in January 2014 and works with The Space Mechatronic Systems Technology (SMeSTech) Laboratory in the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM). He is also an associate editor of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal. Mark has reviewed for several international journals including IEEE Trans. on Industrial Electronics and Mechatronics, Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, Advances in Space Research, Sensors, and Acta Astronautica.
Mark’s research background focuses on development of fully autonomous planetary rovers and nanosatellites, which involves development of a multitude of highly-integrated control and communications systems that allow intelligent and efficient autonomous operation.
His papers include Autonomous navigation with ROS for a mobile robot in agricultural fields, Autonomous micro-rovers for future planetary exploration and terrestrial sensing, InFuse: infusing perception and data fusion into space robotics with open building blocks, InFuse: a comprehensive framework for data fusion in space robotics, Study for femto satellites using micro Control Moment Gyroscope, and Planetary micro-rover operations on Mars using a Bayesian framework for inference and control.
Mark earned his B.A.Sc. in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto in 2004, and his M.Sc. in ultrasonic material analysis and Ph.D. in space robotics from York University, Canada in 2008 and 2014 respectively. His Ph.D. dissertation was Planetary Micro-Rovers with Bayesian Autonomy.
