Sing, who joined the faculty at Chemical and Biomolecular Enginering in August 2014, uses computational and theoretical tools to study the physics of polymers, the molecular chains of repeating atoms that include most plastics. The idea is to figure out how scientists can make new chemicals in silico, so that they can be designed, not just created through trial and error.

Sing completed his Postdoctorate at Northwestern University. He earned a Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2012 and his M.S. and B.S.E. at Case Western Reserve University in 2008.
