We are pleased to announce that Professor K K Phua (Founding Director of the Institute of Advanced Studies, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Adjunct Professor, Department of Physics, National University of Singapore (NUS) and Chairman and Editor-in-Chief, World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd) has been elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) in December 2009.

The criteria for election as a Fellow of APS are based on his contributions to research and education in physics. The citation for Prof Phua's Fellowship reads: "For tireless efforts to strengthen scientific research throughout Asia and promote international physics education and scholarly exchanges, and for enriching science and education through the World Scientific Publishing Company he founded."

Professor Phua is a theoretical high energy physicist and he did some interesting and useful work in particle physics, particularly in the field of phenomenology in high energy collisions.

He is the Founding President of the South East Asia Theoretical Physics Association (SEATPA). Together with Nobel Laureate Professor C N Yang and other senior physicists, he is one of the founding council members of the Association of Asia-Pacific Physical Society (AAPPS). Prof Phua was also the Chairman of the organising committee for the 1990 International Conference on High Energy Physics (Rochester Conference) organised by IUPAP.
