だに
means
even, not even, never, just etc.
だに is placed after a noun or verb as a way to emphasize that the noun or verb is something extreme or unexpected. It is usually referred to as meaning 'even' in the sense of 'not even a little bit', but depending on context 'never' or 'just' may be more appropriate.
It is often (but not necessarily) followed by a negative, such as in a phrase like
よそう
予想
だにしない (I never could have predicted) or
そうぞう
想像
だにしない (I couldn't imagine) etc.
