Sam Nehme

PhD Student


Sam obtained Bachelor of science from New York University Abu Dhabi and MPhil in Micro and Nanotechnology Enterprise from University of Cambridge and has a strong interest in application of nanoparticles in biology and medicine. He has already collected experience from various nano-ispired fields such as structural colours and drug delivery systems. He joined the group in 2017 to work on bio-inspired self-assembly systems and bio-nano hybrids to be used for drug delivery. He is also interested in intersection of science and market, loves sports and feels strongly about deep purple (the colour, not the band)​.
