Research Interests

Currently my research focuses on:

  1. the development of a new in situ tribological method, based on environmental X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (E-XPS);
  2. the development of a fundamental understanding of the influence of the environment on the thermal degradation pathway, kinetics and energetics of silicon oxide-doped diamond-like carbon (SiOx-DLC);
  3. studying the scientific foundation of the influence of the environment on the tribological performance of diamond and diamond-like carbon (DLC) solid lubricants as well as their derivatives (e.g., SiOx-DLC).

This research is supported by the Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF) for Career Development within the 7th European Community Framework Programme (under contract no. PIOF-GA-2012-328776), the National Science Foundation under Grant No. DMR-1107642, and the Advanced Storage Technology Consortium ASTC under Grant No. 2011-012.
