Research Interests 
Our research focus is application of atomic-scale models and micro-scale friction measurements to understand fundamental mechanisms underlying tribological phenomena. Current areas of active research include:
  • Atomic-scale friction
  • Thin film lubrication
  • Solid lubrication and coatings
  • Materials for extreme environments
  • Cellulose nanocrystals
  • Scanning probe wear
  • Micro-tribometry
