Marc Singer

2020 Recipient(s): Marc Singer

Professor Marc Singer is a highly accomplished academic researcher, dedicated to corrosion education through conducting cutting-edge research related to the upstream oil and gas industry. Dr. Singer rebuilt the materials analysis laboratory for the Chemical Engineering Department and developed a “hands-on” elective course for undergraduate students. The course he developed involves determining physical, chemical, mechanical, and microstructural properties of materials after different heat treatment methods and then includes testing corrosion behavior of the materials. Since the Fall of 2013, Dr. Singer has mentored nineteen undergraduate, five Masters, and eleven Doctoral researchers on projects related to corrosion in shale gas production, top-of-the-line corrosion in gas transport systems, corrosion inhibition, and degradation of “3D-printed” metals.

Singer is with Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, USA.
