Dr. Simon Banville received his B.Sc. (2005) and M.Sc. (2007) degrees in geomatics from Laval University, Canada, where he first got involved with precise point positioning (PPP) using global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). In 2014, he completed all Ph.D. degree requirements in the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Richard B. Langley. His dissertation, entitled "Improved convergence for GNSS precise point positioning" was awarded the Parkinson Award by the Institute of Navigation.
Dr. Banville has over 10 years of experience in the development of GNSS-related software, has published close to 20 scientific papers and is regularly involved in the peer-review process of several journals. Since 2010, he has also been working for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) as a senior geodetic engineer. His current activities focus on modernizing the online CSRS-PPP system to include ambiguity resolution capabilities and fast convergence using ionospheric information.
