Subsequently, he worked as a communication officer responsible for disseminating LSP to the wider community.

Singh is passionate about engaging youth and adolescents in programs that build their capacity to serve their local communities. He is also interested in exploring how arts and science interact to create new perspectives, and how arts can be used to more effectively communicate science.
