JHoughPic2017Jeff Hough is a third-year Aerospace Engineering student in the Space Systems Design program at Carleton University. Over the 2014/15 and 2015/16 seasons, Jeff competed as a junior-level international ice dancer while simultaneously attending university and working as an NCCP certified professional coach. After representing Canada at four international events across Europe, Jeff made the decision to close his skating career to focus further on his studies.

For the past year, Jeff has worked as a Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) facilitator within the Center for Student Academic Support at Carleton University. This position entails designing and leading weekly collaborative workshops with the goal of helping second year engineering students understand rigid body dynamics.

Jeff is inspired by Chris Hadfield, and has always been fascinated with the idea of space, and space travel. Currently, Jeff is the newest member of Carleton’s Spacecraft Robotics and Control Laboratory; motivated by recent on-orbit servicing and orbital debris removal initiatives, he is conducting advanced research on the topic of Lyapunov vector fields applied to spacecraft proximity operations under a grant from the prestigious NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA).
