Sophie Damy is currently a research associate at the Centre for Transport Studies at Imperial College London. Her research interests cover:
- Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)
- Positioning algorithms
- GNSS error modelling
- Signal processing
- Data analysis
Sophie joined the Centre for Transport Studies at Imperial College London as a Lloyds Register Foundation scholar in July 2012 to conduct her PhD. Her doctoral research focused on the use of satellite-based positioning systems to support railway operations. In particular, she characterised the code multipath error in the railway environment and developed an improved measurement weighting method to mitigate the effect of these errors on the estimated position.
She graduated in 2011 from the French National School of Civil Aviation (ENAC) in Toulouse, France where she obtained an MSc. in Aeronautical Telecommunications. Sophie’s master thesis was conducted at the PLAN Group, University of Calgary, Canada where she researched methods to improve vehicle navigation in urban areas using Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
