Heaven Singh is an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Civil Engineering, Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology since Nov 2014. He obtained his B.Tech in Civil Engineering in year 2009 from Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology, Patiala. He joined structural engineering research group at Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Roorkee, India for PhD and obtained his PhD on “Behaviour of Concrete Filled Steel Tubular Columns with Different Cross-Sections” in 2015. He has extensive experience in experimental testing of reinforced concrete structures. He has a keen interest in the design of reinforced concrete structures. His research areas include structural behaviour of reinforced concrete structures, concrete technology and sustainable cement-based materials. He has guided 3 M.E. Students and Presently supervising three M.E. and one Ph.D candidates.
