We are delighted to introduce to you Professor Wilfred Tysoe, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, United States, as one of our inaugural Editorial Board Members for RSC Mechanochemistry.
Learn more about Wilfred Tysoe
Wilfred Tysoe obtained first-class honours B.Sc. degree in chemical physics from the University of Manchester in England (1972), an M.Sc. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Sydney, Australia (1975) and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Cambridge in England (1982) working on ultrahigh-vacuum surface science studies of catalytic reaction pathways. Before embarking on an academic career, he taught high-school physics and chemistry as part of the Voluntary Service Overseas program in Ghana in West Africa and worked for the Plessey Company in England designing optical storage devices. Following his post-doctoral studies, also on surface science and catalysis, at the University of California-Berkeley, he joined the Laboratory for Surface Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1984 where he is currently a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry. His work focuses on obtaining a detailed mechanistic understanding of processes occurring on surfaces, such as catalysis with a current focus on understanding heterogenous chiral transfer, self-assembly strategies for molecular electronics, chemical vapour deposition, and understanding tribo- and mechanochemical reaction pathways. He is a co-founding Editor-in-Chief of Tribology Letters. He has over 430 publications and over 300 invited and contributed presentations.
