Hans Fangohr


Hans Fangohr is a Professor of Computational Modelling at the University of Southampton. He is using computer simulations to advance science and engineering, with particular focus on solid state systems, and is researching software development methodology for research. In the area of magnetism, he has created the open source micromagnetic simulation environment Nmag and other tools that are used in academia and industry, and is currently developing a Python interface and Jupyter simulation environment to drive the Object Oriented MicroMagnetic Framework (OOMMF). His core interest are the creation and support of computational tools to enable and accelerate progress in experimental and theoretical science. He is Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modeling, and chairs the UK’s national Scientific Advisory Board on High Performance Computing.
