Narhari Sapkota is our newest PhD student

Narhari Sapkota is the newest PhD student in our research group. He is beginning to study coordination polymers and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) under Adjunct Professor Ari Lehtonen’s supervision. We asked him a couple of questions:

1️. Why did you choose (inorganic) chemistry and what’s the most interesting thing in it?
Chemistry is the central science. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, everywhere there is chemistry. Chemistry can give a solution to the global challenges. These have driven me towards chemistry.

2️. Where have you studied earlier and what do you like about Turku/ University of Turku?
I completed my Master’s degree from the University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu. Turku is a vibrant city. Especially the Aura river and Turku Cathedral I like most. I like everything about Turku University.

3️ What do you do during your free time / what are your hobbies?
I generally like reading, playing football and cycling in my free time.
