CSI Research Fellow Nominated to Attend Global Young Scientists’ Summit

Congratulations to Dr Xianning Lai, a research fellow in Dr Alan Prem Kumar’s group for being successfully nominated to attend the Global Young Scientists’ Summit (GYSS) @one-north from 20 to 25 January. She was one of the highly motivated and passionate PhD students and postdoctoral associates under 35 chosen from all over the world to participate in GYSS@one-north.

Organized by the National Research Foundation, GYSS@one-north is a prestigious international summit where outstanding researchers from all over the world meet. Over the five day programme, Dr Lai had the rare opportunity to attend talks by a panel of Nobel Laureates and interact with eminent international scientists. Topics ranging from chemistry, physics, medicine, mathematics, computer science and engineering were discussed during the multi-disciplinary summit.

Dr Lai’s thoughts about attending the GYSS, “I learnt a lot from this evening’s poster session and it was really inspiring to see such incredible work from fellow young scientists. I also found it really interesting to see the research insights from the many different faculties of science, and I hope to apply their findings and methods into my own research work.”

This year’s theme for GYSS 2019 was “Advancing Science, Creating Technologies for a Better World”, where the latest advances in science and technology and how it can be harnessed to address major global challenges were discussed.
