AF Harvey Prize Lecture By Dr Arseniy Kusnetsov

As the taxi whirred along Nassim Road, the driver noticed the elegant number 28 and pulled over. I alighted, and greeted Dr Arseniy Kusnetsov, who also arrived at the same time, at the doorstep of Eden Hall.  The prestigious AF Harvey Prize winner of 2016 was well prepared for his public lecture, and his eyes gleamed with passion, eager to share his research breakthroughs before a large audience of researchers, professors, and technical experts.


As one of the organisers, I had been preparing to meet and greet a long list of 96 registered guests. Some of the prominent figures are Sir John OReilly, Sir Ric Parker, Prof Brian Lee, Prof Liew Ah Choy, Dr Lim Chuan Poh, etc. The Deputy High Commissioner, Jonathan Darby, also attended the lecture to show his support in STEM development. This public lecture was made possible Ms Isabella Mascarenhas, the IET YP Engagement Manager, who had been endeavouring to authorise the IET Singapore Network to organise the first AF Harvey Prize Lecture outside the UK.
This is not a thank you post but I would still like to express my gratitude toward many responsible people, especially Isabella who put in enormous effort in recommending Singapore Network to organise this prestigious event. Also I thank Yvonne for her support and coordination, Kaixian as the main organiser, Yisheng and Harry for more specialised tasks, Paul and Hanbin from BHC who had been giving very helpful advices on administrative and policy issues. Most importantly, I thank Dr Arseniy Kuznetsov who took his time to prepare such wonderful public lecture. Also thank other volunteers although I cant list all of them in this short blogpost.
