Lok K. Shrestha

National Institute for Materials Science, Japan

Lok K. Shrestha received an M.S. degree in physical chemistry in 2000 from Central Department of Chemistry, Tribhuvan University (TU) Kathmandu, Nepal and a Ph.D. degree in material engineering from Yokohama National University, Japan, in 2008. He was a Research Fellow for two years at the same university under the JSPS fellowship. He then joined the International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS) at International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (WPI-MANA) of National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Japan, and he worked for two and half years as an Independent Researcher. Currently, he is a Faculty Member of NIMS and working as a MANA Scientist at NIMS. Shrestha is skilled in using small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and dynamic light scattering (DLS), for the structural investigation of colloidal dispersions. His current interests are self-assembled nanostructure of amphiphilic molecules both in aqueous and nonaqueous systems (micelles, microemulsions, vesicles, and liquid crystals) and also the structure and properties of the self-assembled fullerene (C60) nano/microcrystals.
