Welcome to the web outlet of the Materials Tribology Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering, directed by Assistant Professor Alison C. Dunn.

We are most interested in the material and surface properties which drive friction, lubrication, and wear behaviors. We study this for the most part experimentally using our own tribology equipment and working closely with collaborators at the Seitz Materials Research Lab, Center for Microanalysis of Materials.
