MY BIOGraphy

Sandeep Kumar Singh obtained his PhD in Condensed Matter Physics from University of Antwerp (Belgium) in 2014. The topic of his research was vibrational properties of graphene nano-flakes and thermo-mechanical properties of graphene-like materials. He then relocated to Sweden and joined the Organic Electronics Lab at Linkoping University (LiU) as a visiting research scientist. At LiU, his work mainly focused on developing multiscale simulation methods (Density functional theory, molecular dynamics, mathematical modeling) of conducting polymers. Further, He spent two years at the Department of Physics of Chalmers University of Technology as a Visiting Researcher and worked on developing molecular solar thermal energy storage systems. Overall, He published 25 research papers in high impact journals including, Advanced Science, PNAS, Chemistry-A European Journal, RSC advance, Journal of Applied Physics, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, Applied electronic materials, ACS applied polymer materials. He joined the Department of Applied Science and Humanity of JKLU in September 2020 as an Assistant Professor and based in Jaipur (India).
