Biography

Patrick Harkness is from Stewartstown, in Northern Ireland. Patrick obtained a MEng degree in Aeronautical Engineering from The Queen’s University of Belfast in 2003 and a PhD in space debris mitigation from Cranfield University in 2007. He then worked with Lockheed Martin on the subject of magnetohydrodynamic flow control before taking up a postdoctoral role at the University of Glasgow, focusing on ultrasonics, in 2008. Most recently, in 2012, he became a lecturer in Space Systems Engineering.

Research Interests

Patrick's main research interest is in space deployable structures, which can include gossamer devices such as aerobrakes, solar sails and antennae, and planetary surface exploration tools such as drills, soil probes and rock-polishing equipment. Patrick also works to support the space activity at the University of Glasgow through the Space Glasgow Research Cluster, and the community in general as co-chair of the RSE Young Academy of Scotland.
