Chandra Veer Singh

Chandra Veer Singh focuses on the computational design of materials for sustainable energy solutions. He has worked with Pratt & Whitney Canada on the computational modelling of strengths in aerospace alloy.

The CME lab aims to change the way materials are designed by bridging the gap between trial-and-error methods and a more fundamental understanding of the atomic level mechanisms controlling the behaviour of materials. Compute Canada infrastructure is crucial to the development of state-of-the-art atomistic modelling and continuum modelling techniques to investigate material behaviour at multiple length and time scales. This research aims to provide a theoretical and computational approach to the design and development of ultra-strong, ultra-light materials for future aerospace, automotive, biomedical and energy technologies. Due to our large model sizes, large quantity of atoms/molecules in our simulations, this research would not be possible without Compute Canada infrastructure. High-performance computing resources are imperative for the modelling of the material systems being studied.
