Beyond the Bio.
Navigating the journey of Thulile Khanyile.


Thulile sparks STEAMi conversations

Welcome to my world of artistic expressions in science, technology, and innovation (STI)! I’m a scientist, entrepreneur, global speaker, and passionate advocate for meaningful conversations. Hailing from KwaZulu Natal in South Africa, my purpose is clear: to create spaces that foster problem-solving and empower individuals to discover their truest, highest selves.

While my early aspirations of becoming a medical doctor shifted, my innate creativity found a home in the lab as a molecular biologist. With over 12 years of experience in HIV/AIDS research and numerous accolades, I’ve mastered the art of expressing science creatively.

As co-founder and co-director of Nka’Thuto EduPropeller NPO, my social enterprise takes science, technology, and innovation to schools in marginalized communities, both locally and internationally. Through our work, we transform societies and empower young minds to recognize their potential.

My podcast, ‘Let’s Talk Science with Thuli,’ serves as a vibrant platform where I, along with other STI professionals, share relatable stories of changing lives through science. I am a frequent speaker on STI, women in tech, entrepreneurship, societal transformation, and breaking barriers in the field.

Whether moderating panel discussions, programming events, or training in communication, design thinking, and personal development, I bring years of expertise to ensure seamless and transformational conversations.

I’m excited to connect with you through my artistic expressions. Stay tuned for my upcoming newsletter, where I’ll share insights, lessons, and engaging content from my journey.

Navigate through this platform and reach out, let’s have a coffee to discuss synergies and how we can create meaningful relations together.

Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure!
