Lok K. Shrestha
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.
