Maria Isabel De Barros Bouchet is an Associate Professor in the Department of Science and Technology of Materials and Surfaces in the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in France. Her research activity in the Laboratory of Tribology and System Dynamics since 2001 mainly concerns the understanding of tribochemical reactions of lubrication additives using simulation by gas phase lubrication, the lubrication of carbon-based coatings with green additives and specially superlubricity mechanisms. Before her chair, she has made her PhD. on the PACVD deposition and characterization of diamond coatings for mechanical applications. Currently, her technological interests are in the synthesis and characterization of novel carbon materials for mechanical applications. Fundamentally, she is interested in understanding the role of structure and surface chemistry of carbon coatings on reactivity with the lubrication additives molecules used in lubricants and fuels. Her research presently includes investigation of the structure, mechanical and tribological properties of carbon coatings (DLC and diamond), and deposition processes of carbon thin films. She has over 65 publications with numerous citations on these topics, has collaborated to the redaction of 3 books and has 3 patents with industrial collaborators. She has served on Scientific Committee and chaired sessions for international conferences. She was the vice-chairwomen of the last event Tribo-Lyon congress 2013 and she serves as editorial board member for Lubricants 2018 Online Journal.
