PhD student, Satarupa Das, nominated by Warwick to attend the Global Young Scientists Summit 2024Link opens in a new window in Singapore.

The Global Young Scientists Summit in Singapore brings together "bright young researchers and top scientific minds from around the world to discuss science and technology trends, future game changers and how research could address major global challenges." It is a multi-disciplinary summit that covers topics across STEM.

Speakers at the summit included recipients of the Nobel Prize, Fields Medal, Millennium Technology Prize and Turing Award. The theme for the Summit, which took place 8-12 January was “Advancing Science, Creating Technologies for a Better World”.

Satarupa, who is studying for their PhD under the supervision of Professor Richard Walton, met with students from around the world, the invited Nobel Laureates and other distinguished speakers. She presented a poster “Production of Bio-plastic Monomer using a Fe-grafted MOF Constructed from a Sustainably Sourced Ligand” and said of her experience,

'Participating in GYSS was a highly enriching experience for me. The summit provided me with the opportunity to showcase my research to a diverse global audience, including renowned scientists from various disciplines. It served as an exceptional platform for understanding how we can leverage our research as a tool to address global issues, fostering collaboration with bright minds, and exchanging dynamic ideas. Throughout the summit, I actively participated in various activities, including a site visit to one of Singapore's leading research facilities. For me, GYSS underscored the immense impact of global teamwork and highlighted the limitless potential within the scientific community.'

Congratulations, Satarupa, for being selected by the International Committee to take part in this prestigious event, and thank you for representing Warwick Chemistry on the global stage.
