Dilpreet Singh

Short Bio

Dilpreet Singh is a doctoral student in the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard School of Public Health in the Molecular and Integrative Physiological Sciences program. He joined the Lab for Environmental Health Nanosciences in the Center for Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology in 2013 under the supervision of Dr. Philip Demokritou.

Dilpreet completed his B.Tech in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Delhi in 2011. He graduated with a MS degree in Environmental Engineering from University of Southern California in 2013 with a focus on Water and Wastewater Treatment.

Research Interests

Dilpreet’s research is focusing on investigating the life cycle environmental impacts of industrial products that have been enabled by nanotechnology. The objective of the current project is to evaluate an end-of-life scenario, whereby the physicochemical, morphological and toxicological properties of Engineered Nanomaterials (ENMs) will be assessed under controlled combustion conditions, simulating incineration and incomplete combustion like fire incidents in buildings.
