Biography

Mr. Parminder Singh is Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology, Patiala, India. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering from Energy Research Centre, Panjab University. He is working on the forced convective heat transfer studies of nanofluids through straight tubes and helical coils. He did his M.E. (Chemical) from Dr. S.S.B.U.I.C.E.T, Panjab University in 2007. He also received a Gold medal for scoring top position during his post-graduation. His research interests are heat transfer and fluid flow, nanofluids, heat pipes, helical coils. He is working Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology since 2007 onwards.
