The CSDA draws from the experience and expertise of a wide range of research groups at the University of Warwick to tackle issues relating to the safety and sustainability of satellite operations in the space domain.
At the University of Warwick, we strongly value equity, diversity and inclusion and will provide a healthy working environment dedicated to outstanding scientific guidance, mentorship and personal development. The Physics Department holds an Athena SWAN Silver award, and is an Institute of Physics Juno Champion.
