Ong Xin Rui has just started her PhD on dung beetles and their feeding networks working in the Tropical Ecology & Entomology Lab at ASE with Assistant Professor Eleanor Slade. In the last month, she has been awarded the Nanyang President’s Graduate Scholarship, and kicked off her PhD with a publication. Congratulations!
Every year in CoS, dozens of PhD students defend their thesis and earn their doctorate, the highest university degree. In this series, we catch up with some new doctors to find out about their experience of doing a PhD in CoS, what made them embark on the intense four year journey and what plans they have for the future. Next up, we have Dr Stephen Pansino, a Research Fellow with the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS).
