Professional experience

Dr. Gurpreet Singh received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Government College of Engineering Pune in India. He then went on to pursue M.S. (thesis option) and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006 and 2007, respectively. He then worked as postdoctoral associate at Institute of Critical Technologies at Virginia Tech before joining Kansas State in August 2009.


Singh runs the NanoScience and Engineering Lab. He works in the area of nanotechnology with a focus on processing-structure-property characterization of two-dimensional materials and molecular precursor derived ceramics for energy-based devices. Singh's research on liquid phase exfoliation of 2-D crystals to generate atomically thin sheets of graphene oxide, tungsten and molybdenum disulfide for high capacity metal-ion batteries has appeared in top American Chemical Society and Nature journals. Singh has >140 technical publications (journal papers, conference papers, patents, books and technical abstracts) to his credit.
