Mr Chua Geng Li, a student attached to A*STAR Institute of Microelectronics (IME) has clinched the High Achievement Award in the 26th Innovation and Research Award (IRA) competition held by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Engineering (FOE). The award recognises Geng Li’s outstanding achievements in his research project titled “Free standing metal electrode for electro-mechanical non-volatile memory”, which focused on the development of novel non-volatile memory for high temperature data storage. The NUS FOE has also nominated Geng Li for the Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher (OUR) Prize, which will put him in the running against top undergraduate research projects on a university-wide level. Geng Li is a final-year Electrical and Electronics Engineering student at NUS. His project is jointly supervised by Dr Vincent Pott and Associate Professor Adekunle Adeyeye of IME and NUS, respectively.
The IRA High Achievement Award is an annual competition organised by the NUS FOE. The award is opened to all undergraduate students within FOE and is presented to a small selection of students who have demonstrated originality, impact, critical and independent thinking, and exceptional achievements in their research projects.
The OUR Prize is an annual university-wide competition to encourage research among undergraduates in NUS. The award recipients are selected from top undergraduate research projects of each faculty. Results of the OUR Prize will be announced in July 2012.
