In recognition of the great strides and milestones he has achieved in scientific research, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Dr Tan Say Hwa with the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

Dr Tan is an Australian Research Council (ARC) DECRA Fellow at the Queensland Micro- and
Nanotechnology Centre in Griffith University, Australia. The ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award is a prestigious award that aims to support excellent basic and applied research by early career researchers. Dr Tan has also been awarded the Griffith University Postdoctoral Fellowship – only a maximum of eight fellowships are handed out annually.

In 2016, Dr Tan was featured as one of 18 emerging investigators – and the only one based in Australia – in the respected journal “Lab on a Chip”. It highly commended his work on using an AC electric field to oscillate and deform micro-droplets. Two years earlier, he had received the Tan Kah Kee Young Inventor’s award for his PhD work on the microfluidic jukebox, which allows, for the first time, an acoustic interpretation of micro-droplets. Dr Tan’s work on micro-droplets has great potential for biological and engineering applications.

Dr Tan has a PhD from the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen – Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Germany. A caring individual, he has volunteered his time at the likes of the Society for the Aged Sick and Tan Kah Kee Foundation.
