Dr. K.K. Singh obtained his Master of Technology (Processing & Agril. Structures) degree from Punjab Agricultural University , Ludhiana in 1985 and Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology , Kharagpur in 1997. Started his career as Assistant Professor at RAU , Pusa in August , 1984 and continued until May, 1985 , thereafter , joined Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering , Bhopal as Scientist S-1 ( ARS-1985) in May, 1986 and worked at different positions until April, 2007 before joining as Head , Food Grains & Oilseeds Processing Division at the Central Institute of Post Harvest Engineering & Technology , Ludhiana . Before joining the post of Director , ICAR-Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering , Bhopal, Dr. Singh worked as Assistant Director General ( Process Engineering ) at ICAR HQ, New Delhi . Dr. Singh has made original contributions on the application of cryogenics in food processing for retention of aroma in spice grinding establishing an internationally recognized school of thought in Cryogenic Grinding of Spices , an area little explored until now in India or abroad . He developed a commercial scale cryogenic grinder for spices, puffed potato cubes, a novel ready –to –eat product and designed a number of need based food processing machines like , small capacity dryer for fruits and vegetables , potato peeler and slicer , power operated peanut sheller, expanding pitch type fruit grader, potato pulper for extraction of starch, etc. Some of these machines have been helpful in reducing the drudgery and enhance efficiency of operations, and have been adopted by the small scale processor / farmers. Dr. Singh has in his credit about 100 research publications in the journals of repute and he is co-author of a popular text book entitled ‘Unit Operations of Agricultural Processing ‘. He has been recipient of several prestigious awards and honours , such as Rafi Ahmed Kidwai Award , Jawaharlal Nehru Award, fellowships of the National Academy of Agricultural Sciences (NAAS), Recognition Award of the NAAS, Fellowship of the Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers, and best poster awards. He was awarded Post Doctoral Fellowship / Visiting Scientist in 2000 by the North Dakota State University , USA.
