Tamara Lim Yee Ching, shortly out of Oxford, invited to present lecture

Tamara Lim Yee Ching, a Malaysian, graduated from Oxford University, specializing in materials and corrosion science. After graduating from Oxford University, she went on to graduate with a Master's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States. She is now working as a Shell Holland materials engineering consultant. After just 15 months out of college, she had been invited to present a lecture on materials and corrosion science in her alma mater, Oxford University, England.

Now Oxford University is no ordinary university. Oxford University is the oldest university in the English-speaking world and very highly regarded. In fact, many consider it as one of the leading academic institutions in the world, consistently ranked among the top ten universities of the world. The fact that after just 15 months after finishing her studies, she had been invited back to present a lecture means Oxford University must have very high regards for her.

Tamara Lim Yee Ching studied at the Alice Smith International School when she was in Malaysia. She is just 24 years young and haven't even started on doctoral studies (Ph.D), and already received this great honor. Malaysia must be very proud of her. In fact, many must be wishing that she is working in Malaysia rather than overseas.

Tamara's father, Dr Lim Chin Joo, is a medical doctor who ventured into businessman and mother. Her mother, Irene Lim, is a chartered accountant.

Well, the Lim's are part of the Chinese Diaspora, and it might be interesting for you to take a peep at More high IQ kids in China than in whole of North America
