Dr Ali Ghanbarzadeh

Research interests

Ali is currently active in the field of tribology especially tribochemistry/Tribocorrosion. He is involved with both experimental and analytical studies of tribochemistry and tribocorrosion(e.g tribofilm formation and removal) and their effects on wear of the boundary lubricated systems.

He has the experience of developing contact mechanics models for rough surfaces. Kinetics of tribochemical reactions is one of the big interests to him.

Ali is currently involved in developing mechanistic models for tribocorrosive wear of boimedical implants.
