Senior Materials Scientist
As a material scientist, Dr. Singh has spent over 10 years designing novel materials for solid-state electrochemical devices (fuel cells, electrolyser cells, and Li- and Na-ion batteries). Dr. Singh’s research interests are also directed towards understanding transport process of ions in ceramics and fundamental reaction steps occurring in electrochemical processes, through electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and impedance spectroscopy genetic programming. Dr. Singh believes that its fascinating world out there with so many different crystal structures and each offering beautiful opportunity to tune their properties for specific applications. She brings the same passion for the material science research into the team of SeeO2 Energy.
Dr. Singh received her Ph.D. in 2016 from the University of Calgary (UofC), Canada, with specialisation in Physical Chemistry. As a predoctoral student in the laboratory of Venkataraman Thangadurai at UofC, Dr. Singh was trained in the fundamental methodologies of engineering of metal oxides, a research that aided her in investigating different structure types for solid oxide fuel cell applications. During the initial years of postdoctoral training, she extended her research direction towards solid oxide electrolyser cells, and solid-state Li- and Na-ion batteries. She obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Chemistry from University of Pune, India, in 2006 and 2008, respectively. She then worked as a project assistant under the supervision of Dr. C. V. V. Satyanarayana for two years (2008– 2010) in the Heterogeneous Catalysis Division of National Chemical Laboratory, Pune, India. Dr. Singh has authored 18 peer-reviewed publications, 3 conference proceedings, and 1 patent application as a result of goal driven Ph.D. and post-doctoral research, independent research projects, and collaborations with research institutes in USA, China, Australia, and Israel.
