Perth, Western Australia,
Professor Gwidon Stachowiak is the Head of the Tribology Laboratory at the School of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, Curtin University in Western Australia. His current work is focused on the development of methods for the characterization of multiscale 3D surface topographies, prediction of osteoarthritis in knee joints based on x-ray images and tribocorrosion. He is the Editor of Tribology and Practice book series published by John Wiley and member of the Editorial Boards of several tribological and bio-medical journals. He is also a member of several international committees including the Executive Committee of the International Energy Agency, Research and Development of Advanced Materials for Transportation. Professor Stachowiak has published extensively and wrote/contributed to several books. He is the leading author of the books ‘Engineering Tribology’ and ‘Experimental Methods in Tribology’ published by Elsevier. Recently, in 2014, he was awarded Tribology Gold Medal, the World’s Highest Award in Tribology, awarded in recognition of his outstanding contribution to tribology while in 2012, he was awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France.
2. Dr. Ellen Schulz-Kornas
Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Ellen Schulz-Kornas applies surface metrology on tooth and bone surfaces to reconstruct diets and tool use to understand wear in a broader view. She is working with chimps, bonobos and early humans to quantify and model mechanical actions, physiological constraints and skeletal motions working as a senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Anthropology at the Max Planck Weizmann Center for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology in Leipzig (Germany). Dr Schulz-Kornas has studied Biology and Palaeontology at the University of Greifswald and in 2008 she earned her Phd in Zoology at the University of Hamburg (Germany). During her six year post-doctoral fellowship at the Center for Natural History and the University of Hamburg she transferred engineering standards to biological surfaces and used feeding experiments with rabbits, guinea pigs, goats as test case scenarios. The focuses of her research are biomechanical characterisation of food components and grinding systems as well as feeding ecology and functional morphology of mammals in space and time. She likes to combine and enhance new 3D imaging technology with material testing, morphology and physiology because it helps to better understand how evolution solves complex requirements. Dr Schulz-Kornas was the organiser of the ICSM 2014 and has published more than 30 articles on tooth wear and function, feeding ecology and dietary reconstruction. She teaches courses that include Biology, Anthropology, Surface Metrology and Statistics at the University of Hamburg and at the University of Leipzig as well as abroad on international meetings in Europe, US and the Middle East.
