my name is Filippo Mangolini. I am a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratoire de Tribologie et Dynamique des Systèmes at the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Lyon, France.

Currently my research focuses on:
  1. the development of a new in situ tribological method, based on X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS);
  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 hydrogenated amorphous carbon (a-C:H:Si:O)
  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., a-C:H:Si:O).
