predicted accurately through simulation, making use of the dynamic mean field density method."

"This allows for a simple approach in the design of molecules for self-assembly and to understand the conditions for self-assembly. This work resulted in the publication of numerous papers and two book chapters," added Assoc Prof Lam. "These self-assembled nanostructures can then be used for solar energy harvesting and sensing applications."

Describing her win as "a very pleasant surprise" and "fantastic recognition of the work that I love to do", Assoc Prof Lam said: "I am honoured to be a recipient of the inaugural L'Oral Singapore for Women in Science National Fellowships."

"But I am also humbled as I have so much more to learn and contribute in my career as a researcher and educator."

A panel of distinguished scientists chaired by Professor Leo Tan, who is a member of the Singapore National Commission for UNESCO as well as Chairman of its Science Sub-Commission reviewed the applications and selected the L'Oral Singapore for Women in Science National Fellowships recipients.

Assoc Prof Lam and the other two winners received their awards from Minister for Education and Second Minister for Defence, Dr Ng Eng Hen, at an awards ceremony on 28 August 2009.

Presented for the first time in Singapore, the L'Oral Singapore for Women in Science National Fellowships have been established with the support of the Singapore National Commission for UNESCO, and in partnership with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The Fellowships aim to recognise the significant contribution of talented women researchers to scientific progress, encourage young women in Singapore to pursue research, and promote their effective participation in the scientific development of Singapore.

Three Fellowships worth S$20,000 each will be awarded annually to women scientists who are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents, to
