Joe Gregory is a PhD student at the University of Bristol where he is investigating the application of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) in collaboration with Airbus Defence and Space. He received his MEng degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Bristol in 2014. During this time, he focussed on space systems engineering and optimisation theory.
The focus of his current work is the optimisation of engineering design, development and verification processes of spacecraft functional avionics using MBSE techniques. Within this area, Joe is particularly interested in early validation and is using MBSE to investigate possible methods of implementation within the context of Airbus Defence and Space.
