About Danny Thonig

Danny Thonig is Associate Senior Lecturer at the School of Science and Technology at Örebro University and member of the Fellowship Development programme at Örebro University. A two page CV can be downloaded from here.


Danny Thonig's research is in theoretical materials modelling, with focus on computational analysis of atomistic, semi-classical dynamics and electronic structure theory. Such materials research has the main aim to be the fundament for more efficient, faster, smaller, and greener future technologies. Danny Thonig's research gave significant contribution in the area of magnetism, which are, among other things, i) revealing fundamental energy dissipation and energy conservation mechanisms in magnets, ii) characterising the thermal stability of various magnetic materials, in particular such that do not exists in nature, iii) demonstrate high existens probability of magnetic monopols in so called "spin ice" materials, which are otherwise forbidden by fundamental electro dynamical law. Danny Thonig is furthermore the initiator and main developer of the program package CaHmd



Danny Thonig gives lectures and/or computer labs for the courses Numerical Methods, Optimisation, and Multivariable Analysis in various engineering programs and he is responsible for the examination at advanced level at the School of Science and Technology at Örebro University. He is also STEM professional for the initiative "Letter for pre-science" and is engaged in public work.
