Surendra Singh

Dr. Singh’s experience in thermal sciences includes evaluation of the stability of chemicals and their fire and explosion hazard potential using various instrumental techniques, including calorimetric, minimum ignition energy (MIE) apparatus, 20-liter sphere for dust and gas explosion (KSt value), BAM oven for flammability, and blasting cap testing for shock sensitivity.

Dr. Singh has been involved in incident investigations, where self-heating resulted in thermal runaway or catastrophe. His work has included determining the origin and cause of thermal runaway reactions and/or explosions.

Prior to joining ioKinetic, Dr. Singh was a senior scientist within the materials and mechanics group at Exponent, Inc., a senior technologist in the battery group at TIAX, LLC and a consultant in the process safety and risk management division at Arthur D. Little, Inc.
