Astrodynamics, Space ScIence, and Space Technology (ASSIST) Laboratory
Piyush M. Mehta, Assistant Professor


At ASSIST Lab, we perform state-of-the-art research at the intersection of Astrodynamics, Space Weather and Machine Learning. We are working on developing novel technologies and solutions including methods, tools, and software for real-world problems in:

  • Astrodynamics, Space Situational Awareness and Space Traffic Management
  • Space Weather - Probabilistic Modeling and Forecasting with Uncertainty Quantification
  • Physics-informed Machine Learning
  • Space Exploration
  • Atmospheric re-entry
  • Dynamic Reduced Order Modeling for Large-Scale, High-Dimensional Systems
  • Model-Data Fusion and Nonlinear State Estimation
  • Data-Driven Modeling
