Our warmest congratulations to Professor Tan Choon Hong, Chair of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences on his conferment as Fellow of the Singapore National Academy of Science.
The College of Science is proud to announce that 12 students from CoS have been recognised at the 2020 Global Undergraduate Awards, with 2 Regional Winners and 10 Highly Commended entrants.
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 Phan Quang Gia Chuong, a Research Fellow in SPMS.
