Yogendra Singh

PhD Researcher and Teaching Associate

Centre for Simulation, Analytics, and Modelling


Yogendra is a PhD researcher and Teaching Associate at Centre for Simulation, Analytics and Modelling. His PhD is focused on Operations Research, and is under the expert supervision of Prof Stephen Disney, one of the most renowned scientists in the world, and co-supervision by Dr Okechukwu Okorie, a high multidisciplinary repute. Focus of the research is on integrating control engineering principles (especially the z-transform transfer function) and value stream mapping to develop parsimonious yet robust supply chain models to capture its rich dynamics. He is also a Reviewer for the Journal of Cleaner Production (Impact Factor - 11.072).

Yogendra is a multidisciplinary researcher. Prior to PhD, he worked and published in various areas including Astrodynamics, Space Trajectory Optimisation, Space Mission Design, Mechanical Design, and Process Engineering. He has worked with various industries in different capacities, for instance, Infosys USA, Ceva Logistics, DHL, Asahi Shimbun, Yamaha Motors, Continental, Airbus Defence & Space on a project for European Space Agency and NASA, and academic institutions including at Aoyama Gakuin University (Japan), University of Birmingham (UK), Cranfield University (UK), University of Texas (USA), Virginia Tech (USA), and University of Tasmania (Australia). Among other awards, he has received two Gold Medals, prestigious University of Exeter Business School PTA scholarship, School Commendation, and a few universitywide records.

School Commendation 2021/22
For an “Excellent” academic performance, “significant contribution to the life of the School,” “recognizing sustained commitment,” and “performed beyond normal expectations.”
Awarded University of Exeter Business School PGR Teaching Studentship Award
Fortunate enough to have been awarded one of the most generous and prestigeous scholarship in the UK.
Team member for the feasibility study of LISA constellation mission
LISA constellation mission (planned launch 2037) is often termed as the most advanced scientific undertaking by mankind ever, and is going to be the largest man-made structure in space, larger than International Space Station. It is a ESA and NASA collaboration mission.

Few Universitywide records
Universitywide record for the highest term GPAs ever, 9.85/10, breaking my own record of 9.65/10. Other records include, highest GPA ever for thesis 10/10, highest GPA ever for the industrial project 10/10, been the only student to achieve them individually and in combination, among other honours and awards. Additionally, the only UG student to publish research at such a scale.
Only student member, Quality Assurance Committee, appointed by the Chancellor
Other members in the committee included Directors of different schools, Director of Quality, Chief Proctor, and headed by the Vice-Chancellor. It was appointed by the Chancellor to improve the quality of University education and infrastructure to improve university ranking and obtain the most prestigious national accreditation, which it eventually got.
