Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Manish Roy graduated from IIT, Kharagpur. After a short stay with an integrated steel plant as Junior Manager and his post graduation, he joined Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory as a scientist. His areas of research interest are materials and surface engineering for tribological application and nanotribology of self-lubricating films. He is particularly interested in various interactions between oxidation/corrosion and tribology. Meanwhile, he has visited various European universities and research laboratories under prestigious programmes of Royal Society (London), Austrian Science Fund (FWF), and European Commission. Dr. Roy has around 100 papers in various reviewed national and international journals. He edited a book titled, Surface Engineering for Enhanced Performance against Wear. He has been guest editor of several special issues of several international journals. He is also on the editorial board of several international journals. Dr. Roy has organised several international symposiums in India and abroad. He is also a distinguished visiting professor at Indian National Academy of Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
J. Paulo Davim received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Porto in 1997, the Aggregate title from the University of Coimbra in 2005 and a DSc from London Metropolitan University in 2013. Currently, he is Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Aveiro and the Head of MACTRIB - Machining and Tribology Research Group. He has about 30 years of teaching and research experience in manufacturing, materials and mechanical engineering with special emphasis in Machining & Tribology. Recently, he has also interest in Management/Industrial Engineering and Higher Education for Sustainability. He is the Editor in Chief of eight international journals, Guest Editor of journals, books Editor, book Series Editor and Scientific Advisory for many international journals and conferences. Presently, he is an Editorial Board member of 30 international journals and acts as reviewer for than 80 prestigious Web of Science journals. In addition, he has also published as author and co-author more than 10 books, 60 book chapters and 350 articles in journals and conferences (more 200 articles in journals indexed in Web of Science, h-index 35+).
