Associate professor of materials science (CNU 33)STMS/LTDS

Clotilde Minfray graduated in Materials Science and Engineering from INSA de Lyon and pursued a PhD in Tribology at École Centrale de Lyon. She currently teaches materials science, tribology and surface analysis techniques at École Centrale de Lyon. Her research activities focus on the understanding of tribochemical phenomena, that is to say chemical phenomena activated by friction. She studies more specifically the anti-wear aspects in severe lubrication conditions for various applications ranging from engine lubricants to mineral grinding through lubricant for metal cutting operations.
