Naveen Kumar Singh received his B.Sc. in Biotechnology (2007) at University of Pune (Pune, India), M.Sc. in Biotechnology (2009) at Jaipur National University (Jaipur, India), and Ph.D. in Biochemical Engineering (2016) at Jacobs University Bremen (Bremen, Germany).
During his Ph.D., Naveen worked under the supervision of Prof. Marcelo Fernández-Lahore. His research dealt with designing experiments for developing fiber-based and cryogel-based adsorbents for capturing large therapeutic biomolecules (proteins, plasmids, and monoclonal antibodies). He had successfully evaluated the in-house fiber- and cryogel-based chromatographic adsorbents with the commercially available adsorbents and the in-house adsorbents had shown similar or higher productivities compared to the commercial adsorbents.
In February 2017, Naveen joined the group of Prof. Merlin L. Bruening in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. His current research focuses on developing novel bioseparation processes by introducing polyelectrolyte multilayer films onto membranes/monoliths for the purification of biotherapeutics like monoclonal antibodies.
