Dr. Meenesh R. Singh is a postdoctoral scholar in the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and UC Berkeley. He obtained B.E degree from Sardar Patel University in 2005, M.Tech degree from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in 2008 and Ph.D from Purdue University in 2013.
He is currently supervised by Prof. Alexis T. Bell (UC Berkeley) on the development of solar-fuel generators that can convert sunlight, CO2, and water to transportation fuels. His doctoral research on the shape evoution of crystals was under the guidance of Prof. Doraiswami Ramkrishna (Purdue U.).
His work is recognized by multiple awards such as i) George Klinzing best PhD award, ii) AIChE process development division student paper award, iii) AIChE separation division graduate student research award, and iv) Purdue outstanding graduate student research award.
The central theme of his research is to develop experimental and computational tools for fundamental understanding of materials and systems involved in the synthesis of - i) Designer crystals for pharmaceutical applications, and ii) Solar-fuels for energy applications.
