Professor

Qualification : M.Phil, Ph.D. (Environmental Science; JNU)
Specialization : Hydrogeology, Biogeochemistry, Health Risk Assessment, Solid Waste Management, Climate Change
EXPERIENCE : Dr. Umesh Kumar Singh has received his postdoctoral training from Department of Civil Engineering, Kansas State University, Manhattan, USA. He has received Ph.D. degree (Environmental Science), M.Phil (Environmental Science) and M. Sc. (Environmental Science) from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi and B.Sc. (Hon’s) in Chemistry from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi.

Prof. Singh is involved in the source identification and monitoring of natural and anthropogenic contaminants in soil and water system. His research group is interested in finding the pathways of trace metals in a variety of systems (water, soil and plants). His research mostly focuses on arsenic, fluoride and other heavy metals studies and their ecological and health risk assessments in the riverine and groundwater bodies and develop methods to remove fluoride from the contaminated groundwater. In addition, his group also investigates the groundwater contamination from the leachates coming out of landfill sites along with methane gas monitoring and measurement to explore its impact on the global warming and climate change.
