Imphal, June 19,
Dr. Binota Thokchom has been invited to deliver a talk to the 3rd BRICS Young Scientist Conclave to be held at Durban, South Africa - 2018.

Dr. Binota Thokchom was conferred PhD Degree in Environmental Engineering by Korea University, Seoul, South Korea.

She was an Institute Post Doctoral Fellow at Department of Chemical Engineering of the same Institute. She also worked at Analytical Instrumentation Division, National Environmental Engineering Research Institute.

It is indeed an immense honour and a moment of pride for the whole state of Manipur and for India to have produced and nurtured such a remarkable yet noble daughter who has achieved so much in her young age and also to get the opportunity to attend the 3rd BRICS Young Scientist Conclave at Durban, South Africa. We all wish her the very best and she is, indeed, one of the few ‘Women in Science” in India, who will always be an aspiration; and hope that her knowledge will continue to enlighten and encourage the younger generation to take an interest in the Sciences to shape a better tomorrow.
