Dr. Baneshwar Singh is currently working as assistant professor of the Department of Forensic Science, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), Richmond, VA. Teaches forensic molecular biology course to senior undergraduate and graduate students, and manages his forensic research laboratory. He received BS and MS degrees with gold medals in life sciences from India. He then began his PhD study in biology at West Virginia University, Morgantown. He did his Postdoctoral Research Associate work in the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University (TAMU),College Station, TX. Dr. Singh has received board certification for lectureship in life sciences from UGC-CSIR, New Delhi, India. He is an active member of the North American Forensic Entomology Association (NAFEA).He also worked as a postdoctoral research associate in Dr. Jeffery Tomberlin and Aaron Tarone’s laboratories at Texas A&M University College Station, and in Dr. Tawni Crippen’s laboratory at Southern Plain Agricultural Research Centre of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA-SPARC), on a National Institute of Justice (NIJ) funded project on development of novel methods for estimation of a postmortem interval (PMI). He also conducted several forensic entomology workshops for law enforcement personnel’s.
Dr. Baneshwar Singh’s research work revolves around application of molecular methods in forensic science. Specifically, in microbe-blow fly interaction with respect to decomposition ecology, and its application in the development of new forensic tool for estimation of postmortem interval (PMI).
