A PhD student has been selected to present his work to some of the world's top scientists, including six Nobel Prize winners, at a conference in Japan next month.
Terence Goh, who studies at the University of Dundee, will join around 100 other students and researchers presenting posters for discussion at the event in Tokyo.
They also have the opportunity to ask the panel of Nobel Laureates questions about their work.
Mr Goh, from Singapore, is spending 18 months at Dundee to research the interaction of ultrasound waves with biofilms, an area with direct applications for both healthcare and the environment.
The 27-year-old's background is in physics and mechanical engineering. He said he chose to study in Dundee because the research programme allows him to gain new skills in life sciences which are applicable to his work.
"I am very excited to have the opportunity to attend this conference. I was nominated by my PhD supervisor in Singapore, who asked if I'd like to be considered. Of course, I agreed and was delighted when I was then selected from all the nominees," Mr Goh said.
"It was slightly unusual for me to be selected as the event is primarily concerned with life sciences, while I come from a physics and engineering background. Because of this it will be interesting to hear the views of scientists from other fields who have different approaches.
"I am currently finalising the research for the poster I will present on using ultrasound to remove bacterial biofuels.
"We have also been asked to submit questions for the Nobel Laureates and other speakers, so I'm sure it will be a great experience to learn from some of the best scientists in the world."
The HOPE Meeting, organised by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, takes place between February 26 and March 2 with 110 doctoral students and young researchers from the Asia-Pacific region presenting posters.
