Daniele Dini

Daniele Dini is Head of the Tribology Group at Imperial College London. Prior to joining Imperial in 2006, Professor Dini studied in the Department of Engineering at the University of Oxford, working on fretting fatigue of gas turbine components. He has been involved in work on fretting fatigue and wear for over 20 years, and currently leads the advanced modeling research team within the Tribology Group at Imperial, collaborating closely with its experimentalists. His current research portfolio supports a large team of researchers focused on studies related to the modeling of tribological systems and materials. Most of these projects are multidisciplinary and range from atomic and molecular simulation of lubricants, additives, and surfaces, to modeling of systems, such as machine and biomedical components. He has received many individual and best papers awards, sits on a number of international committees and editorial boards, is a Fellow of the UK Institute of Mechanical Engineers, and has published over 200 journal articles along with several book chapters.
