Charles E. Sing is a Helen Corley Petit Scholar and Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his BS and MS in polymer science from Case Western Reserve University in 2008, and his PhD in materials science from MIT in 2012. Prior to starting at Illinois in 2014, Charles was a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. His research interests are broadly in the area of computational and theoretical polymer physics; current projects focus on molecular and sequence properties of polyelectrolyte solutions, out-of-equilibrium rheology of semidilute polymers, polymers with nonlinear architectures, and charge transport in redox active polymers. He was recognized as one of Forbes' '30 Under 30 in Science' in 2015, was the recipient of an NSF CAREER Award in 2017, and as an ACS PMSE Young Investigator in 2020.
