Bart Root

Bart Root is an assistant professor at the TU Delft at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering working on satellite gravimetry. Along-side his PhD research at the TU Delft, he has been working on the Vening Meinesz project as scientific advisor. During his Postdoctoral Research fellowship at Dublin institute for Advanced Sciences, he looked at the gravitational signal of mantle convection and its effect on lithosphere structures. Now back at the TU Delft, his research is focussed on planetary gravity field modelling, lithosphere structure, mantle convection, glacial isostatic adjustment, and satellite tracking.
