About Bart

About Bart
I've graduated in Belgium with a M.S. in Engineering and a Post-Master in Fluid Dynamics Research at the von Karman Institute. I've completed a Ph.D. on the ExoMars Schiaparelli mission, studying the flight measurements and modeling the atmospheric entry, descent, and landing. I'm currently working at Deimos Space in Madrid, where I create aerodynamic designs and mission concepts for hypersonic vehicles and reusable rockets.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
Personally, I've tutored briefly for one year giving physics classes to a senior high school student preparing for a US university. His application was successful. In my profession, I've supervised and taught dozens of students in my capacity as a planetary science and engineering Ph.D. candidate.

Royal Observatory of Belgium, Assistant Researcher
2011 - 2019
I've worked on and studied numerous planetary exploration missions, including CubeSat asteroid landers, Venus missions, Mars missions, and Earth re-entry. My research combined engineering models and sensor data with atmospheric science on Mars, learning about the environment through flight measurements. My work involved lots of Newtonian mechanics, vector algebra, vector calculus, data processing methods, aerodynamics models, sensor models, data combination methods (Kalman filters, Bayesian inference, batch least-sqaures fitting), and...
