Magdalena Lepicka

Research Fellow

Magdalena Lepicka is currently a research fellow in the Nanoelectronics Engineering Department (Nanodevices Research Group) at INL. Her research is focused on the development of anti-wear films for deposition on metallic biomaterials, particularly titanium alloys. Her main research interests focus on designing wear tests for medical applications as well as methods for evaluation of anti-wear coatings.

Magdalena Lepicka is the graduate of Bialystok University of Technology, Poland. Her PhD focused on establishing the influence of surface modification on wear and corrosion performance on metallic implant alloys. Before joining INL she was an assistant professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Materials Engineering and Production at the Bialystok University of Technology.
