Dr. Singh is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Associate Director of the Pediatric Bipolar Disorders Clinic, and Interim Director of the Depression Clinic at Standford University School of Medicine.
Dr. Singh earned her MD at Michigan State University and her MS at University of Michigan. She completed her combined residency in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. After two years of neuroimaging training at the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research at Stanford University, she joined the faculty at Stanford in 2009.
Dr. Singh currently combines advanced research methods such as neuroimaging, genetic analyses, and neurobehavioral assessment and focuses on human neurodevelopmental disorders. Her research program explores the complex risk factors associated with the development of mood disorders in children and adolescents and investigates methods to protect and preserve function before and after the onset of mania and depression in youth. Dr. Singh’s laboratory serves as a model for interdisciplinary brain sciences research.
Dr. Singh was awarded an NIMH-K23 career development award integrating innovative neuroimaging techniques and mechanisms of emotion regulation to understand the neurodevelopmental risk and resilience factors associated with bipolar disorder. She is involved in teaching, training residents, clinical fellows, post-doctoral research fellows, undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. Dr. Singh is also an author of more than 20 peer-reviewed publications, most involving research approaches designed to address pivotal issues in child psychiatry.
Among her many honors, Dr. Singh has also received the NIH Loan Repayment, the NARSAD Young Investigator Award, the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Depression Fellowship, the American Psychiatric Association’s Young Minds in Psychiatry International Award, and Michigan State University’s Distinguished Young Alumni Award. She currently serves as a principal investigator on an NIH-funded project examining factors associated with risk and resilience for developing bipolar disorder in childhood, and has participated in an NIMH workshop designed to integrate neuroscience, developmental psychopathology, and prevention interventions.
