Professor Steele’s research focuses on in fundamental physical chemistry and problems in which unique electronic structure leads to interesting nuclear dynamics. He develops theoretical methods that efficiently interface accurate electronic structure theory with electronic and nuclear dynamics.
As part of the Lectureship, Professor Steele will be awarded a travel bursary of £1000 to attend and present at a leading international event in 2018, where he will be presented his Lectureship award. Professor Steele has also been invited to contribute a Perspective article to PCCP.
