Stephen Winter received his PhD degree from the University of Waterloo (Canada) in 2014, for his work in the area of strongly correlated organic materials. He subsequently moved to the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Frankfurt (Germany) as an NSERC postdoctoral scholar to develop new theoretical approaches for quantum materials with strong spin-orbital coupling. He continued there as a Junior Project Leader. His research career has spanned a variety of topics in chemistry and physics, which has included a combination of synthetic, experimental, and theoretical efforts. Before joining the faculty at WFU in Fall 2020 as a tenure-track Assistant Professor, he had coauthored over 45 papers in materials research. His current research interests include theoretical modelling of complex materials with coupled spin, charge, and orbital degrees of freedom.
