The research work in the paper was funded by the European Research Council under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 679086 - COMPASS) and by the European Space Agency contract 4000133981/21/D/KS.

Short bio:

Lorenzo Giudici is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Aerospace Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, as part of the COMPASS and GREENSPECIES ERC projects.

His research focuses on the application of the continuum mechanics formalism to the modelling of space debris, to address the orbital propagation of large population of fragments at a limited computational cost.

Main outcomes of his work are a probabilistic debris evolutionary model and sustainability metrics to measure the environmental impact of missions in space.
