Rajendra Kumar Singh

Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India

Born in Oct 1967, Prof. Rajendra Kumar Singh is a Full Professor in the Department Physics, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. His research interest includes solid state ionics, polymer electrolytes, ionic liquids, ionogels, and lithium and sodium ion batteries. He has contributed significantly to the studies on changes in thermal, dielectric and other properties of ionic liquids in confined geometry. He has studied role of ionic liquids in modifying thermal, electrical, optical, and crystallization behaviour of polymer electrolytes. He is currently focussing on studies on lithium and sodium ion batteries. He is an author and co-author of more than 110 papers published in international scientific journals of repute, 4 edited books and several book chapters.
