Michael Auinger is Associate Professor at the University of Warwick, specializing in the fields of Computational Thermochemistry, Transport Phenomena and Corrosion.

He obtained his doctorate in Chemical Engineering in 2009 from the Johannes Kepler University in Austria and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut fuer Eisenforschung GmbH in Germany. He obtained the “venia docendi” from TU Wien in Inorganic Materials Science in 2018 and, unrelated to that, another tenure track completion from the University of Warwick in 2020 in Materials Modelling and Computation. Since March 2015, he joined the University of Warwick as the modeller of the steel group in WMG, focussing on computational methods to improve steel and metals manufacture.

He has published more than 45 articles and has held more than 20 invited talks all over the world (TU Delft, Carnegie Mellon University, Tohoku University…). His works were recognised by the TP Hoar Award from the British Institute of Corrosion and the EOS Prize of the European Optical Society.
