Filippo Mangolini, assistant professor in the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been selected for the 2024 Provost’s Teaching Fellow Cohort at the University of Texas at Austin.  

Provost’s Teaching Fellows (PTF) engage with the campus teaching community in a variety of ways, including the completion of individual PTF Initiatives. Fellows spend their first two to three years focusing on their independent initiatives and dedicate the remaining portion of their fellowship to peer mentorship and campus-wide PTF events. The PTF Program operates in conjunction with and is supported by the Center for Teaching and Learning.

This is the 11th cohort of Fellows. Previous Fellows from the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering include: Richard Neptune, Carolyn Seepersad, and Maura Borrego.

Mangolini joined the faculty at UT in 2018 after serving as a Marie Curie IF Fellow at the University of Leeds. The overarching goal of his research activities is to develop a physically-based understanding of the structural transformations and chemical reactions occurring on material surfaces and at solid/solid, solid/liquid interfaces under extreme environments and conditions far from equilibrium.
