Dr Singh joined Department of Surgery and Cancer in March 2015 as an expert in physiological signal analysis and Intelligent systems. Since then he has led the Data Analytics at the Neuroergonomics and Perception Lab (

He kickstarted the Neurostimulation projects on surgeons' brain with his NIHR-BRC funded grant titled 'Neuromodulation and Neuroimaging to Enhance Surgical Performance (NANESP)'. He is a Chief Investigator on Dstl funded projects in the area of Defence Neuroergonomics such as 'Novel Strategies to Sustain Performance on Complex Cognitive Tasks'. 

He has wealth of experience in portable neuroimaging (Electroencephalography, functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, transcranial Direct Current Electrical Stimulation). Prior to joining Imperial, Dr Singh has worked in high profile departments such as Neonatal Unit at Rosie Hospital Cambridge, Biomedical Optical Research Laboratory (BORL), University College London, Centre for Systems Neuroscience, University of Leicester, Impaired Consciousness group, University of Cambridge and Intelligent Systems Lab, University of Warwick. At Imperial College, He has been crucial to the investigations on the surgeon's brain. He has developed specialist methods to decipher stress-related responses in surgeons. Dr Singh’s research portfolio also includes Machine learning based Eye-tracking data analysis, Neurofeedback, Brain computer interfaces (BCI) and Artificial intelligence in Medicine. He is involved with the supervision of Clinical Research Fellows (PhD) and BSc students at Neuroergonomics and Perception Laboratory,  Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, St Mary’s Hospital.
