Dr. Simron Singh is a Professor & Associate Dean of Graduate Studies in the School of Environment, Enterprise and Development, at the University of Waterloo. Simron conducts socio-metabolic research on small islands. As an industrial ecologist, he tracks material and energy flows through island systems: what and how much resources are locally produced, imported, transformed, used, stocked and discarded. His research aims to inform science and policy on ways small islands can achieve resource and energy security, meet social and economic goals while building resilient infrastructure to endure climate change. He has conducted extensive research in the Nicobar Islands (India), Samothraki (Greece), and in several Caribbean nations. He is co-founder and lead of the research program Metabolism of Islands.
