Tom Reddyhoff is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and a member of the Tribology Group. He also holds a five year EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship. Before joining Imperial College, he completed a PhD in tribology at The University of Sheffield.
Dr Reddyhoff’s background is as a mechanical engineer, though the scope of his research has broadened to include the chemistry and physics of surfaces. He has specialised in developing a range of experimental methods, which he uses in combination with numerical modelling to analyse sliding interfaces. For this research, he has received the Tribology Trust Bronze Medal, a Tiaho Young Tribologist Award and two best paper awards.
