The most important grants (as PI)


Danko Radić graduated in physics at the Department of physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb in 1997, received his MSc degree in 2002, and defended his PhD thesis at the same university in 2006 under mentorship of Aleksa Bjeliš. Major field of his scientific interest was the condensed matter physic, especially collective effects like spin and charge density waves induced by external magnetic field in the systems of anomalous dimensionality. During the period 2008-2010 he was a postdoc at the University of Gothenburg, and then during 2010-2011 at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, where he has broadened his scientific interest into fields of physics of nanoelectromechanical systems and thermally assisted magnetic recording. At the moment, he is involved in the field of collective and topological effects of sinthetic magnetic fields.

He was employed at the position research associate at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb in 2009, and he got the position of assistant professor at the same institution in 2013. Danko Radić is the author of 22 scientific publication indexed in CC, 13 abstracts in domestic and international conference proceedings, 10 oral presentations at domestic and international conferences. He worked as a collaborator on 6 domestic and international scientific projects.

He teaches Selected topics in solid state physics, Elementary solid state physics, Seminar in solid state physics and Differential equations and dynamical systems at Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. He supervised one diploma thesis and had co-mentorship in one PhD thesis.
