In just the past three months (from December 2011 to February 2012), Dr. Gurmukh Singh, Department of Computer and Information Sciences, has eight scholarly articles published or accepted for publication in reputed national/international journals and conferences.
Among eight research papers, four articles are in the field of information systems and the remaining four papers are in the field of relativistic energy nuclear physics. The Information Sciences research work is based on computer simulations performed on high speed processors using software systems such as Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2010, MS Excel 2010 and Open Source Linux OS. The latter scholarly work is based on two experiments conducted in national and international laboratories such as European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland, and Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), Upton, NY.
After joining the Department of Computer and Information Sciences in 2005, Dr. Singh is actively engaged in science education research work and has published several scholarly articles in computer science, information systems, physics, chemistry, biology, genetics, and bio-informatics. For all his scholarly activities, Dr. Singh conducts extensive computer simulations using Monte Carlo techniques on high speed computing machines.
In the month of December 2011, he reviewed the latest edition of one textbook currently being used in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences to teach Information Systems Structures course one of the most popular courses taught to business and accounting majors in the department. He is an invited speaker and session chair in the 1st Annual World Congress of Emerging Info Tech-2012 (WCEIT) to be held at Dalian, China. His list of publications during a short span of the last three months is presented below:

Dr. Singh joined The Department of Computer and Information Sciences in fall of 2005 as a temporary part-time faculty. In less than two years after joining the department, he won the very prestigious "The Robert W. Kasling Award" in 2007, which was conferred to him on the basis of an outstanding work done on the formation of Quark Gluon Plasma in relativistic high energy nuclear interactions. Since joining Computer and Information Sciences Department, Dr. Singh has published forty scholarly articles in reputed national/internal journals in the field of information sciences, science education, distance teaching/learning methodology (twenty research papers) and relativistic heavy-ion nuclear collisions (20 papers). Altogether, Dr. Singh is an author of over 150 scholarly publications in reputed American, European and International refereed Journals and conferences. He was an editor and member of organizing committee of the International Conference: Applications of Computer and Information Sciences to Nature Research (ACISNR-10) Conference held at SUNY Fredonia, Fredonia, NY, on May 5-7, 2010, ISBN 978-1-60558-918-3.
He has attended several SUNY Conferences on Instruction and Technology (Genesee Community College, CIT-2008; SUNY Oswego, CIT-2009; SUNY Plattsburgh, CIT-2010; SUNY Brockport, CIT-2011) and Educational Technology Conferences (Gannon University, Erie, Pa., 2008, 2009; Saint Rose College, Albany, 2010) and has been awarded many scholarships by the CIT committees and travel grants by the office of Vice President of Academic Affairs, Director of Professional Development Center (PDC), and Dean of College of Arts and Sciences, SUNY at Fredonia.
Dr. Singh was honored as session chair in CIT-08 Conference hosted by SUNY Genesee Community College, on May 27-30, 2008. Currently, he has four very active research collaborations with his departmental colleagues, and with national and international scholars, which is a testimony that he is an accomplished scholar in multi-research fields.
In addition to his scholarly work, Dr. Singh devotes considerable amount of time in teaching. He is an exceedingly valuable instructor of computer and information sciences. So far, he has taught eleven different computer and information sciences courses with mostly full enrollment. The past four semesters, he has been teaching 120 to 150 lab-based information sciences students each semester. Students appreciate his teaching methodology and expertise by sending him numerous "Thank You" notes. Additionally, due to his well-accepted teaching and communication skills in computer and information sciences, his teaching evaluations reflect the very fact, and he always receives 4.00 or more on a 5.00 scale. Recently, he has designed and developed two new computer and information sciences courses in the department. He has reviewed four textbooks in computer and information systems: Introduction to Web Programming, Starting with Visual Basic 2008, Introduction to Information Systems and Information Systems Structures. After contributing so much to the Fredonia University in less than seven years, still Dr. Singh is a full-time yearly contractual faculty in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences. Scholars and educators like Dr. Singh deserve recognition for their excellent scholarly and exceedingly good teaching work.
