Singh has been a professor at Georgia since 2007 and was named to her current position as associate dean there in 2016. Her research, practice and advocacy are far-reaching, and focus on translating a deep understanding of the experiences and needs of historically marginalized groups into insights on how counselors and psychologists can offer meaningful support and become effective social change agents.
A prolific author, Singh has published over 100 articles and several books, such as Racial healing: Practical activities to help you challenge privilege, confront systemic racism and engage in collective healing (2019) and is a co-PI on the first National Institutes of Health-funded longitudinal, multi-site (Atlanta, New York, San Francisco) study of trans and non-binary risk, resilience and identity development. She has been honored with over 11 national awards for her work in social justice organizing and community-building, and currently serves as president of the Society of Counseling Psychology.
