Dr. Basil Singer

Quantum-Physicist & Robot Designer

A quantum physicist, science geek, television presenter, skateboarder and kite surfer, Dr. Basil Singer is a man of many talents. Not afraid of a bit of adventure, he is an “extreme scientist” and is equally adept at freezing atoms to the point of absolute zero or catching monumental air with his kite board.
When he’s not filming science shows or explaining the physics behind break dancing, Dr. Singer can be found in the lab at the family business, Singer Instruments Co. Ltd, in Somerset, England. As both manager and senior physicist, it is his job to build and develop robots and scientific instrumentation for institutions worldwide that do research on cancer treatments.
A self-confessed nerd, Dr. Singer has a profound passion for science, particularly physics. While working toward his Ph.D., Dr. Singer froze atoms to three micro Kelvin — that’s three millionth of a degree above absolute zero, the coldest temperature in the universe. This data helped him and other scientists observe the behaviour of electrons as they whizzed around the nucleus inside the atoms. The results of these experiments could one day see us develop teleportation devices and supercomputer brains the size of a grain of sand.
