Associate Professor in Tribology and Corrosion Engineering, University of Leeds

Dr Michael Bryant CEng FHEA is an Associate Professor in Tribology and Corrosion Engineering in the Institute of Functional Surfaces (iFS), School of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on tribological (the science of friction, wear and lubrication) and surface interactions of materials used in biomedical applications with a strong publication record within the area of tribology and surface analyses.

I am currently developing research and teaching activities devoted to modern aspects of corrosion, tribology and surface science. This includes surface chemical effects in energy production, bio-tribology, bio-corrosion and methods of mitigation. My research is concerned with understanding and optimising the interactions occurring at interfaces commonly found in many applications. My research addresses a wide range of applications including aerospace, automotive, orthopaedic, cardiovascular and incontinence technologies.
