Dr. Prashant Singh- Scientist
Ames Laboratory, U.S. Department of Energy, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011 USA
Dr. Prashant Singh is Staff Scientist in the Division of Materials Science and Engineering of Ames Laboratory. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from S.N. Bose National Center for Basic Sciences (Calcutta University), Kolkata, India in 2013. He joined the Ames Laboratory in 2014 as a Post-doctoral Fellow, where he focused on the development of thermodynamic linear-response theory for short-range order in complex alloy systems. In 2019 he joined the Ames Laboratory as a staff scientist. His research melds modern electronic-structure methods and their computational solutions to predict thermodynamic properties and interpret characterization experiments. He addresses data driven design of important classes of materials such as high-entropy alloys, steels, MAX phases and rare-earths, while explaining many phenomena and accurately predicting new ones by developing electronic-structure based tools and techniques. His work on high-entropy alloys has led to prestigious US Dept. of Energy funded research projects. Dr. Singh’s current research interests range from development to application of density-functional theory-based methods and physics-based machine-learning models for materials design.
Dr. M V Reddy- Researcher
Senior Professional Researcher at New graphite world (NMG), Montreal, Canada
Dr. M.V. Reddy obtained his Ph. D (2003) in the area of Materials Science and Engineering (with highest distinction) from the University of Bordeaux, ICMCB-CNRS, France.
