Satbir Singh is an associate teaching professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, which he joined in September 2012. He joined the department as a research staff member in February 2010, after spending three years as a researcher at General Motors Research and Development.
Singh’s teaching and research activities focus on analytical, experimental, and numerical methods in thermo-fluids. His teaching and educational goals are to help students build a strong foundation in basic concepts, and equip them with state-of-the-art engineering tools that are used to solve real-world problems. His research goal is to develop accurate computer models for simulations of turbulent flows. He works closely with Carnegie Mellon’s Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies (CAPS) to perform research in the area of efficiency and environmental impact of energy conversion technologies.
