Manoj is a PhD Student in the Tribology Group at Imperial College London. Manoj joined the Tribology Group at Imperial College London in October 2019, under the supervision of Dr Marc Masen and Dr Philippa Cann. His research involves the development of biolubricants through exploiting the lubrication mechanisms seen within nature. The lubricant is aimed to be compatible for a range of mechanical applications in the future.
Manoj graduated from Imperial College London with a Masters in Engineering (MEng First Class Honors). During his degree, he investigated the development of shear measurement devices for application within insoles and wheelchairs to combat the development of pressure ulcers due to shear. He also worked on the development of a novel nanotribometer for the measurement and derivation of shear forces, coefficient of friction and other tribological parameters on the micro-nano scale.
