Gordon G. Krauss is the Fletcher Jones Professor of Engineering Design in the Department of Engineering at Harvey Mudd College. His design research interests include improving the way designers interact with each other in the design process and how design process tools are applied. He chairs the biennial Clive L. Dym Mudd Design Workshop at Harvey Mudd College and is active in the engineering design community. His other area of research is the field of tribology—the study of friction, wear, and lubrication. Research topics in that field include the friction of human skin, thin hard coatings, and graphene as a lubricant additive. Prior to joining Harvey Mudd College, Gordon was a lecturer in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan and enjoyed a career in industry. He holds a PhD in mechanical engineering and an MS in aerospace engineering—both from Boston University—and completed his undergraduate degree in physics and astronomy at Haverford College.
