Dr Jerome Daquin

My Expertise

PhD holder, F.R.S.-FNRS fellow, with 5+ years of postdoctoral experience in analytical fields, my expertise lies in the application of the mathematical and numerical tools and techniques of nonlinear dynamics to astrodynamics, space situational awareness and celestial mechanics. I approach those problems within the framework of dynamical system theory, from performing detailed mathematical modeling to carrying out large-scale simulations of the complex environment occupied by space debris and artificial satellites. Prior joining UNSW, I have held several research positions in dynamical systems theory and their applications, at RMIT Univeristy within the SPACE team, in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Padova (Italy),  in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Namur (Belgium).

My Research Activities

My expertise lies in the application of the mathematical and numerical tools and techniques of nonlinear dynamics to astrodynamics, space situational awareness and celestial mechanics. I approach those problems within the framework of dynamical system theory (resonances, chaos), from performing detailed mathematical modeling to carrying out large-scale simulations of the complex environment occupied by space debris and artificial satellites.
