Margaret M. Stack
Margaret Stack is interested in the interactions of solid particle erosion and wear of materials in corrosive environments with specific emphasis on the development of mapping techniques for understanding the mechanisms of materials loss. He is the author/coauthor of 120 papers in these areas, and has presented the work at over 50 international/national conferences. He heads up the Tribology Research Group in the department. He is also involved in a number of professional bodies in the UK, the International Network on Tribo-Corrosion (TrICorr-Net) which he has led since 2000, the Tribology Group of the Institute of Physics where he is currently a member, and the Scottish Association of Metals where he is the Immediate Past President. He held a chair in mechanical engineering since January 2001, and obtained a D.S. degree from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in July 2003. Stack is a member of the Engineering Sub-Panel on Materials (UOA 29) for the UK Research Assessment Exercise in 2008 (RAE 2008).
