Nhlakanipho Mkhize

Nhlakanipho joined the lab in October 2015 to read for a DPhil looking at nanoparticle toxicity specially focusing  on the affects due to morphology and surface charge. He obtained his Masters degree in Chemistry from Rhodes University in South Africa under Distinguished Professor Tebello Nyokong. His focus was on the development of optical limiting materials using phthalocyanines and related compounds embedded in polymers for the safe-guarding of sensitive optical instruments including human eyes. Nhlakanipho is a Rhodes Scholar, and when not in the lab, he enjoys hiking, amateur video-making and listening to an eclectic mix of music.
