is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and a member of Tribology Group. He also leads the SKF University Technology Centre for Tribology at Imperial College. He obtained his MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering followed by a PhD in Tribology from Imperial College in 2005. He subsequently took a post at SKF’s Engineering and Research Centre in the Netherlands where he worked on rolling bearing research, before returning to Imperial. Kadiric’s research focuses on efficiency and reliability of mechanical systems, including damage accumulation in rolling/sliding contacts through mechanisms of rolling contact fatigue, micro pitting and scuffing; frictional losses and efficiency in transmission systems; contact mechanics; and surface coatings.
