Dr. Paramjeet Singh


Assistant Professor


Numerical Partial Differential Equations




Paramjeet Singh is Assistant Professor of Mathematics, at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology, Patiala since July 2013. Before joining Thapar he was working as Postdoctoral Researcher in University of Cape Town, South Africa (2012-2013). He completed his PhD in Mathematics from Panjab University at Chandigarh in June 2012 and his research was sponsored by CSIR, Govt of India as Junior and Senior Research Fellowship. His research is motivated by applications of differential equations in neuroscience and numerical analysis. He taught many courses viz. Functional Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Mathematics 1 and 2, Probability and Statistics etc. at PG and UG Level.
