Quicktab - Person

Dr. Koki Ho directs the Space Systems Optimization Group at Georgia Tech. His research tackles complex space system design and mission analysis problems by developing new mathematical methods based on optimization and probabilistic modeling. His contribution adds a new dimension of system-level modeling/optimization to the traditional space systems and astrodynamics research, with a goal to reduce the cost, time, and effort needed for the space mission design practice. The applications explored include, but are not limited to, (i) human space exploration campaigns, (ii) on-orbit servicing, assembly, and manufacturing (OSAM), and (iii) mega-scale satellite constellations.

Dr. Ho earned his Ph.D. at MIT and his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Tokyo. He is the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award (2020), the NASA Early Career Faculty Award (2019), the DARPA Young Faculty Award (2019), and the Luigi Napolitano Award (2015), and he is a co-author of one of the most downloaded Acta Astronautica articles. He is currently the Chair of the AIAA Space Logistics Technical Committee.
