Researcher biography

Joseph obtained his PhD from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2016. His PhD focussed on design, synthesis, and characterisation of metal-semiconductor hybrid nanomaterials for optoelectronic and photocatalytic applications. In March 2017, he joined the research team of Prof. Golberg at QUT as a postdoctoral research fellow, where he expanded his research areas to novel energy storage materials and advanced transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques.

Joseph joined CMM at The University of Queensland in July 2022 and brings expertise in aberration corrected scanning TEM and various in situ TEM techniques such as scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM)-TEM and atomic force microscopy (AFM)-TEM, to investigate nanostructures at high spatial resolution in response to external stimuli such as electrical current, mechanical force, heat, and light. In addition, Joseph has expertise in electrochemistry, primarily in the field of rechargeable battery research and related characterisation techniques. His responsibilities include the development of new capability for Centre’s Hitachi HF5000 aberration corrected S/TEM as well as operation and client training for S/TEM.
