Thor has an academic background in computational chemistry and chemical physics. After his Ph.D. and a few years of postdoctoral research, he jumped over to HPC and worked as an application expert in molecular dynamics at the PDC Center for HPC. During this time he became increasingly drawn towards teaching workshops, developing training material and organizing events, not least because of his involvement in the CodeRefinery project. Thor is passionate about helping researchers write better code with less effort, and is involved in the Nordic-RSE initiative which aims to build a community of research software engineers in the Nordics.
