Singapore President Halimah Yacob highlights Asian Scientist Magazine at Women’s Forum Asia

My deepest thanks to Singapore President Madam Halimah Yacob for highlighting my work as a science journalist during her opening speech at the Women’s Forum Asia on 19 September 2019.

Here’s what she said:

“Science remains a critical and prolific field in Singapore. Yet, it is a common misconception that women do not do well in this area. I think we need to change that. Singapore has seen 25% more women research scientists and engineers in 2017 compared to 2012.”

“One such example is Dr Juliana Chan, who is also founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Asian Scientist magazine. What started as Dr Juliana’s personal blog in 2011 has flourished into the foremost print publication, highlighting research and development news stories in Asia to a global audience.”
