Richard Langley is a professor in the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), where he has been teaching and conducting research since 1981. He has a B.Sc. in applied physics from the University of Waterloo and a Ph.D. in experimental space science from York University, Toronto. After obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Langley spent two years with the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he carried out research in geodetic applications of lunar laser ranging and very long baseline interferometry.

Dr. Langley has worked extensively with the Global Positioning System. He is a co-author of the best-selling Guide to GPS Positioning published by Canadian GPS Associates and is a columnist and contributing editor of GPS World magazine. He has helped develop and present a number of seminar courses on GPS over the years. Dr. Langley has consulted extensively in the field of GPS with private companies and government agencies both in Canada and abroad.

Dr. Langley has held appointments to several national and international bodies including the Canada-wide Differential GPS Service Management Board and the The Institute of Navigation.

For his contributions to space geodesy, Dr. Langley shared two awards from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. In 2004, he was made a fellow of The Institute of Navigation and in 2007, he was made a fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation. In 2007, Dr. Langley also received The Institute of Navigation's Johannes Kepler lifetime achievement award.
