The Anglo-Thai Society annually recognises exceptionally talented Thai PhD students studying at UK universities across a wide range of academic disciplines. The awards are generously supported by the Royal Thai Embassy, commercial organisations and individuals. Candidates are nominated for consideration by their academic supervisors and their work is assessed by an independent panel of distinguished academics. Kamonwad Ngamchuea ('Dia'), a 3rd year D.Phil.student in the group has been announced as the winner of the award category of Science. Dia works on experimental electroanalytical chemistry; her latest paper has recent been accepted by Chemistry - A European Journal and is titled "Single oxidative collision events of silver nanoparticles: understanding the rate-determining chemistry".
