Talk at NUS Faculty of Science Open House

Dear all, I will be sharing with prospective students during NUS Science Open House on Sat 24/5/08 regarding my experience in doing a research project on Chek Jawa. Feel free to come and listen. :-)

Date: 24 May 2008

Location: LT27

Talk Title: Life and death at Chek Jawa. A UROPs research experience in Life Sciences

Talk duration: 15 min (between 2:00-3:30pm)

Speaker name: Mr. LOH Kok Sheng

Speaker profile:

Mr. Loh graduated from Serangoon Junior College and joined NUS in 2005, majoring in life Sciences with specialization in Biology. In July 2007, he received the MOE Teaching Award. Mr. Loh has great interests in ecological work and did an UROPS project under the supervision of N. Sivasothi, Peter Todd and Dan Rittschof. His project aimed to study the mass mortality and recruitment of macrofauna at Chek Jawa in Pulau Ubin. Since the project has application value in understanding and conserving the Singapore macrofauna at Chek Jawa, Mr. Loh’s achievement has been featured in Embracing passion, NUS Advertorial and The Straits Time (March 25 2008). In this talk, Mr. Loh will share with the audience his experience in project work (UROPS) in Life Sciences and highlight those qualities that he has developed through this project as a junior scientist.
