Biography

Dr Daniel M. Mulvihill is Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Glasgow (James Watt School of Engineering) and a faculty member of the Materials and Manufacturing Research Group (MMRG). Following undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering, he completed a doctorate in experimental mechanics and tribology at the University of Oxford (UK) in 2012. He then completed postdoctoral periods at the University of Limerick, EPFL Switzerland and the University of Cambridge prior to joining the University of Glasgow in 2016. 

His research interests are mainly focused on tribology, experimental mechanics and materials for energy applications. His work has included contributions on, friction, wear, surface topography, triboelectrification and adhesion. He has also explored topics in composite materials and aerospace metal alloys. He is a ‘novel materials editor’ for Chemical Engineering Journal (Elsevier) and also editor for Results in Engineering (Elsevier). He is a Chartered Engineer in the UK (C.Eng.) since 2017 and was elected Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (FIMechE) in 2023. Dr Mulvihill is also a former Institution of Mechanical Engineers Tribology Trust Bronze Medallist (2013). He presently leads a major £1.5M EPSRC project (EP/V003380/1) on next generation textile triboelectric nanogenerators. Much of his present work is focused on electro-mechanical problems especially that of triboeletrification and triboelectric nanogenerators. He chairs the British Society for Strain Measurement (BSSM) conferences committee (CONFCO) and is an active member of the IMechE Tribology Group. He was General Chair of the BSSM 17th International Conference on Advances in Experimental Mechanics (University of Glasgow, 30th Aug to 1st Sept 2023).
