Dr. Naveen Kumar Singh is an assistant professor at the Centre for Biomedical Engineering. He received B. Tech in Biotechnology from Allahabad Agriculture University, M. E in Biotechnology from Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences Pilani, and Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati. He was the recipient of the Newton Bhabha fellowship and performed part of his Ph.D. research work at the University of Bath (U.K) on the biosensing application of extended gate field effect transistors. From 2020 to 2023, he was a post-doctoral research staff at the University of California San Diego and later joined as a postdoc at Pennsylvania State University. He has been involved in projects on (i) Implantable/ wearable sensors for continuous stress monitoring. (ii) Point of care sensor for low-cost fast diagnostics of pathogens, (iii) One-step aptamer selection in a three-dimensional non-fouling porous hydrogel. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed papers/book chapters and is an inventor of over 5 patents and patent applications.

His research focuses on technology-driven biosensor development at the interface of bioengineering, electronics, chemistry, biophysics, and chemical biology that can address research and clinical health monitoring and therapy needs. He is also interested in programmable biomaterials using nucleic acid (aptamer) and hydrogels that can undergo dynamic and controllable changes on demand.
