Sébastien Henry is a Ph.D. student in aerospace engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Under the supervision of Professor John Christian, he is studying spacecraft navigation, and especially the utilization of navigation sensors for scientific use.
He obtained a master’s degree in aerospace engineering from ISAE-SUPAERO in 2021, where he majored in space systems. He received the “Exceptional academic achievement award” for maintaining a superb GPA every semester and handing in a master’s thesis graded excellent. This last one was written during an internship at CNES’s space surveillance department and explored the use of multiple object bayesian filters to track space objects that are ambiguously close to one another. He also conducted a research project about machine learning/data science to automate the spacecraft collision avoidance process. Sébastien also has a bachelor's degree in engineering from UCLouvain with a major in applied physics and chemistry and a minor in mechanics.
Sébastien is not afraid to tackle challenging problems alone, but he also loves to share ideas and collaborate with his peers. His hobbies are electronic music production, team sports, and backpacking.
