IGP PhD graduate Lee Kelvin (1st from left) has won the 1st Best Paper Award at CASPT and TransitData2022 for the paper "Path-Oriented Synchronised Scheduling Using Time-Dependent Data" in Tel-Aviv, Israel, after two rounds of submissions due to the Covid-19 delay. The study addresses the growing need for seamless transfers between different modes of public transportation by introducing path-oriented scheduling and integrating time-dependent travel time data.
He was also awarded the Third Prize at the International Conference of Hong Kong Society for Transportation Studies 2023 in Hong Kong for the paper on "Enhancing Fixed Transit Services with Demand-Responsive Limited-Stop Services Considering Alternative Routes" . The study proposes a model that reallocates buses in real-time based on observed or predicted travel demands to address the inefficiencies of conventional bus services and cater to the demands better. Unlike traditional stop-skipping approaches, the proposed limited-stop service dynamically adjusts routes and allows buses to detour to shorter alternatives, optimizing resource utilization and reducing passenger travel times.
Kelvin is supervised by Prof Su Rong (EEE (CoE)) and Prof Arvind Easwaran (SCSE (CCDS)). The awards were based on his innovative approach to optimizing public transport operations and improving fixed transit services respectively. Congratulations Kelvin!
IGP PhD student Muhammad Naeem Nadzri was featured in a Straits Times article on 13th November 2023 for his notable work and pursuits. Naeem was deeply moved to take action against the global water crisis after learning about the devastating floods that ravaged Pakistan in 2022. Concerned by the impact of climate change on water scarcity especially in developing countries, he strives to contribute meaningfully to sustainable water solutions and emphasizes the need for global collaboration to ensure water security for all.
As part of inaugural Singapore Climate Youth Development Programme (CYDP), Naeem is set to participate as a youth delegate in the UN Climate Conference COP28 in the UAE to engage in global climate change discussions, focusing on water scarcity issues due to droughts and floods.
Congratulations Naeem! It’s inspiring to see your hard work and dedication recognized in the media.

IGP PhD student Jerome Tan (3rd from right) has won the Best Oral Presentation Award (SYIS) at the TERMIS-AP 2023. The TERMIS-AP chapter specifically focuses on the Asia-Pacific region and organizes conferences, events, and initiatives to foster research and collaboration in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine within this geographical area. This year, it was organised at the Hong Kong Science Park, Hong Kong from 16-19 October 2023.
Jerome is a 3rd year IGP student supervised by Prof Chew Sing Yan (CCEB) and Prof Lim Kah Leong (LKCM). The award was based on his presentation on the use of impedance, a label-free technology to obtain electrical properties of cells, as a quality and safety check for spinal cord injury cell therapy manufacturing pipelines. Congratulations Jerome!
IGP PhD student Brandon Wong has won the Best Oral Presentation GOLD award for the SHBC-2023. SHBC (Singapore Health & Biomedical Congress) is Singapore NHG's annual flagship event. This high-level conference is attended by over 3,000 local and international delegates. This year, it was organized at the Singapore Expo 12-13 October 2023.
Brandon is a fourth year IGP PhD student supervised by Asst Prof Navin Kumar Verma (LKC) and Prof. Richard Webster (SPMS). The award is based on part of his PhD research explaining how high extracellular K+ ions in the tumour microenvironment inhibits T-cell motility. Congratulations Brandon !
