Developing deep structure-property relationships for emerging optoelectronic materials

Julian A. Steele received his Ph.D. in physics from The Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM), University of Wollongong, before undertaking postdoctoral work at KU Leuven (Belgium) and UC Berkeley (USA). From May 2023, he began a DECRA Fellowship at the School of Mathematics and Physics, The University of Queensland, working on a range of condensed matter topics, within which phase transition phenomena in semiconductors feature heavily.
