Welcome to the Mangolini Research Group, the Laboratory for Applied Surface Science (LASS) at The University of Texas at Austin. Our interdisciplinary group focuses on the study 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.
