Linus Kweku Labik holds a BSc in Applied Physics from the University for Development Studies, Ghana, and an MSc and a PhD in Materials Science from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. Was appointed as a Lecturer in the Department of Physics - KNUST in 2021. An early career researcher, his research areas are energy storage, most especially Lithium Ion Batteries (LIBs), materials of the universe through the study of particle aggregation in proto-planetary disks to understand better planet formation and evolution and conversion of waste materials. Currently working on data collection and analysis using a Table Top Radio Telescope (TTRT) donated by the Development in Africa with Radio Astronomy (DARA), recycling and reuse of spent LIBs as well the microstructural characterisation of materials used in construction and conversion of materials from waste. He hopes to contribute to attaining the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting scientific exploration and acquiring new materials and technologies that can contribute to the sustainable development efforts in Ghana and the world, responsible consumption and production and affordable and clean energy. He supported the Regional Hilal Committee under the Office of the Ashanti Regional Chief Imam to set up their telescopes and assist in the sighting of the crescent moon for the commencement and end of Ramadan. He is interested in contributing to nurturing the next generation of skilled individuals, promoting scientific awareness and improving the educational systems towards fostering sustainable development in the region.
