Dr Surinder Singh joined SEAM at Swinburne University of Technology in April 2021 as a post-doctorate fellow. Currently, he is working on three SEAM projects in collaboration with five different industries in the areas of surface engineering and thermal spraying. He received his Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar India (2019) in Mechanical Engineering. Based upon the quality of his research work, he was awarded with director’s fellowship during his Ph.D. Surinder has published 23 refereed journal articles. He is also an excellent volunteer reviewer of academic journals in the field of manufacturing, and surface coatings, and received an excellent reviewer reward from a top journal in his research area, the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology.
Surinder has demonstrated a deep understanding of thick copper coatings deposited by cold spray and laser cladding technologies, which have potential applications in sectors related to public health (anti-corona surfaces), marine (anti-bio-fouling), energy (Tokamaks), and automotive components (exhaust system). Moreover, his research collaboration with General Electric (GE) India has uncovered the potential of cold spray technique for its use as an additive manufacturing technology. Surinder has also worked on designing life estimation methods for electric vehicle batteries incorporating Artificial Intelligence techniques.
