We are delighted to welcome Assistant Professor Chandra Veer Singh. Having obtained his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University, Dr. Singh joins us from the Computational Mechanics & Materials Group in the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Cornell University.
Dr. Singh’s expertise is in the area of Computational Materials Science. Using computer simulation, his lab will employ atomistic modeling techniques to develop a further understanding of deformation and failure mechanisms in a variety of engineering materials. Working with a team, his research objectives look to solve concurrent failure issues in many of today’s applied materials and to help improve their performance limits.
Some teaching plans are also in the works: Dr. Singh plans to introduce new courses in Computational Materials Science and Atomistic Modeling of Materials.
“I am excited to join U of T because of its world renowned engineering programs, multi-cultural heritage, and highly collaborative environment” says Singh. “I hope to make a positive contribution to the University community.”
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Singh to MSE,
Jun Nogami | PhD, FAAAS, PEng
