Denis Music is a professor at the Department of Materials Science and Applied Mathematics at Malmö University. He received his PhD at Linköping University in 2003 and Habilitation (Docent) at RWTH Aachen University in 2008. His core skills include density functional theory and other related computational methods as well as a very strong background in characterization and synthesis techniques, including non-equilibrium techniques (plasma) giving rise to novel synthesis routes for advanced nanomaterials. Denis does interdisciplinary research in Materials Science of thin films. He uses theoretical and experimental means to design novel thermoelectric devices and other energy generation/storage materials as well as explore underlying growth phenomena, including surface and interface physics and chemistry. Other research interests include nanolaminates and nanomaterials in general, hard coatings, and organic/inorganic hybrid materials. He is a board member in many international journals and actively involved in conference organization. Denis is also involved in research at Biofilms Research Center for Biointerfaces (Malmö University).
