Dr Uche Onwukwe
Research Fellow


Uche is a Research fELLOW with a background in Materials Science and a PhD in biomimetics towards the green synthesis of functional materials. They have  extensive experience in the use of various characterisation techniques including electron microscopy (TEM and SEM), various spectroscopic techniques (Raman, FTIR, UV-VIS-NIR) , a range of X-Ray techniques (XRF, XRD) and an understanding of the use of  different thermal techniques. 

Their research interests lies in nanomaterials synthesis and characterisation, biomimetics and presently in circular economy - specifically  phytomining and hyperaccumulators.
