We are currently interested in the following research topics​:

  • Nanotribology of mineral surfaces, organic crystals and 2D materials
  • Manipulation of nanoparticles and heteroepitaxially grown nano-islands
  • Nanoscale characterization of abrasive wear and ways to control it and physical mitigation methods
  • Shear-induced nanopatterning of polymer surfaces
  • Minimalistic modeling of atomic-scale friction and nanomanipulation
  • Material removal processes, surface generation and subsurface damage in precision/ micro machining
