Dr. Singh specializes in exploring the ovarian follicular dynamics and neuroendocrine controls for characterizing oocyte competence in the bovine model of maternal aging and during perimenopausal period in women. His recent research interests include the development of domestic animal models of endometriosis in women and benign prostatic hyperplasia in men.
