My name is Hiwa and I joined Lhasa Limited as an Application Scientist in October 2022.

I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a PhD in Bioinorganic Chemistry in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Jim Thomas where I developed heteroleptic metal complexes as bioprobes and phototherapeutics. Following on from my PhD, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in leading research groups in both the UK (University of Sheffield, Cardiff University) and the USA (University of Hawaii at Hilo, City University of New York) at the interface of chemical biology, nanomedicine, and medicinal chemistry. The majority of my research has been focused on the design of chemical systems for imaging, sensing, and therapeutic applications.

Once I returned to the UK in February 2022, I joined the University of Sheffield once again and worked on developing powerful antimicrobial agents for pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, and materials coatings. 

I joined Lhasa so that I can work with outstanding talented colleagues who are dedicated to delivering life-enhancing products and contributing to reducing animal testing to the greatest extent possible. Aside from that, I also believe my academic and professional experience has provided me with the skills and technical knowledge I need for my new role at Lhasa.

In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, hiking, camping, and watching football.
