A WORKING paper by a Malaysian scientist has been selected as one of China’s top 100 most influential international academic papers, Sin Chew Dailyreported.
Low, who grew up in Simpang Renggam, Johor, is working together with other academics to find out how solar energy could be used to convert carbon dioxide into natural gas.
“It is expected that more and more young people will be part of politics. This is a positive development in the long run, ” he said.
> Sin Chew Daily quoted Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) president Tan Sri Goh Tian Chuan as saying that young voters could dictate the results in the next general election.
If the research proves successful, it will convert carbon dioxide in the air for industrial use and help achieve the goals in the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Low graduated from Multimedia University with an engineering degree in 2012 before obtaining a PhD in Materials Science from Wuhan University of Technology in 2018.
He was also listed in Stanford University’s compilation of the world’s top 2% scientists last year.
Currently, Low works for the University of Science and Technology of China.
Speaking to several Chinese youth organisations via a virtual conference, Goh urged the participants to build better ties with youth organisations of other races to shape the future of Malaysia.
Goh also encouraged youths to consider taking part in social work and to discuss politics in an informed manner.
