Congratulations Nnabangshu for submitting his PhD thesis today.
Nabangshu joined us in July 2017. He did an excellent PhD during his time in our group, working on a diverse range of projects. Of particular highlights are (1) developing a new MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry assay to study PC-PLC, (2) studied protein-protein interactions for a number of proteins including Hsp90 and human ribosomal proteins, and (3) pioneered the use of immobilised laccases for bioremediation. In addition to doing good science, Nabangshu is also a very keen science communicator. He has won multiple prizes at our School of Chemical Sciences Annual Research Showcase (as judged by external academic judges) and made a very engaging Green Magic YouTube video last year. He also help recorded a series of instruction videos for a new Chemistry course (CHEM 351) this year. Nabangshu also has a good publication record, with two co-authored papers (in Eur. J. Med. Chem. and Chem. Commun.) and a first author paper in Anal. Methods. At least a couple more papers are currently under preparation so watch this space!
Well done Nabangshu!
