Prof. Tomasz Liskiewicz
Tomasz has 20 years of international academic and engineering experience from leading research institutions in the UK, France, Canada and Poland. His research interests focus on surface engineering and tribology of functional surfaces, with a particular interest in understanding the engineering coatings, its architectures and optimization for enhanced functions.
His work has been published in such journals as Surface & Coatings Technology, Wear, Tribology International, and Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research. It has been presented at international conferences that include the World Tribology Congress, International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films, and Plasma Surface Engineering.
Tomasz holds a doctorate in Tribology from École Centrale de Lyon, France, and MSc degree in Materials Science from Lodz University of Technology, Poland. He spent two years in Alberta, Canada, working as a Senior Scientist in Charter Coating leading material testing projects for oil and gas industry.
Tomasz has taught BSc, MSc and PhD-level courses on tribology, surface engineering and thermofluids. He was elected Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London in 2014. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics in London, where he acts as a Chair of the Tribology Group Committee. Tomasz has editorial position at Taylor & Francis Tribology journal and contributed invited book chapters on surface engineering and micro-mechanical characterisation methods.
