Dr. Steve Ulrich – Associate Editor

Steve Ulrich is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University. He received is BEng and MASc in Electrical Engineering from the Université de Sherbrooke (2004, 2006), and holds a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Carleton University (2012). From 2006 to 2008, he was Spacecraft GN&C Research Engineer with NGC Aerospace Ltd. In 2013, he was Postdoctoral Associate with the Space Systems Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he contributed to the design and development of GN&C techniques for close-proximity operations using the SPHERES facility aboard the International Space Station. His research expertise encompasses path planning, adaptive and learning systems, robotics and computer vision with applications to spacecraft formation flying and proximity operations. Dr. Ulrich is the recipient of a Carleton’s Research Achievement Award (2020), a Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science’s Early Researcher Award (2019), and the best paper award at the 2017 International Conference on Control, Dynamic Systems, and Robotics. For his PhD work on adaptive control applied to space robotics, he was awarded a Senate Medal and the E.Y. and J.W. Research Award in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering. He is a senior member of AAS, AIAA, and IEEE, a member of the AIAA Guidance, Navigation and Control Technical Committee, and a member of the IFAC Adaptive and Learning Systems Technical Committee. Since 2017, he is also serving as Technical Area Chair (Space Robotics) for the AIAA Guidance, Navigation and Control Conference.
