Brief Bio:

David Tomnek is a leading expert in the development and application of numerical techniques for structural, electronic, and optical properties of surfaces, low-dimensional systems and nanostructures, computer simulations of fullerenes, nanotubes, ferrofluids, metallic and magnetic clusters. He received his M.Sc. (Diploma) in theoretical physics 1979 from the University of Basel, Switzerland, and his Ph.D. in 1983 from the Freie Universit{\"a}t Berlin, Germany. He had a research assistant position at the Freie Universit{\"a}t till 1985, was research associate at the AT&T Bell Labs (1985), at the University of California, Berkeley, CA (USA) (1985-1987) before joining the Physics Faculty at the Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI (USA) in 1987. He was visiting professor in numerous universities and research institutes around the world.
