Prof. Oguri's research interest lies at the intersection of astrodynamics, control, optimization, nonlinear dynamics, and stochastic systems. His research develops mathematical and computational frameworks that address scientific and engineering challenges in space exploration, through advancing the state-of-the-art in space mission design, space trajectory optimization, spacecraft guidance, navigation, and control (GNC), and space autonomy. In particular, his Ph.D. research was focused on developing robust space mission design methods by combining astrodynamics, optimal control, stochastic optimal control, and numerical optimization to advance the technologies for autonomous spacecraft GNC and designing robust space trajectories under uncertainty. He also leverages his flight project experience as a mission designer at NASA JPL and JAXA to blend theory and practice, to identify and address critical challenges in real-world applications, and to contribute to the forefront of space exploration.
