Summary

Jia Min obtained her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), training under 2005 Nobel Laureate Professor Richard R Schrock. In 2013, she set up and headed the Laboratory of Advanced Porous Materials at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) in Singapore. Jia Min was awarded the 2013 L'Oréal Singapore For Women In Science National Fellowship. Her current research interests are bio-inspired materials exhibiting special properties such as structural colour, high strength and toughness, as well as self-healing capabilities.
