Staff Profile

Dr Christopher Pearson

Research Associate in GNSS geodesy

Background

Introduction

I have been employed as a research associate since July 2017 within the Geomatics department of the School of Engineering, Newcastle University. I was awarded a PhD in 2018 from Newcastle University entitled 'Network Solution as a facilitator for Precise Point Positioning Real Time Kinematic' which focused on GNSS positioning and ambiguity resolution. Prior to my PhD I graduated from the SMS (Surveying and Mapping Science) degree within the geomatics department at Newcastle University in 2012.

My work includes a number of GNSS geodesy projects and collaborative research on satellite altimetry. I am responsible for industrial contracts processing offshore GNSS data in the GIPSY-OASIS software. I also teach and give support to three CPD courses within the school on GNSS and Least Squares.
