Linus Kweku Labik has a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics from the University for Development Studies, Navrongo Campus now C K Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences, Navrongo. He obtained his Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.

His research areas focus on the study of the characterisation of materials leading to the development of new materials, improvement of available materials and conversion of waste materials. Specifically, zeolites that are synthesised from locally available raw materials and their applications range from developing low-cost energy storage systems and Solid State Batteries, replacement as binding material in construction materials and in the conversion and treatment of electronic and plastic wastes as well as carbon dioxide adsorption. His research aims to contribute toward the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In particular, ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all (SDG 7), build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation (SDG 9), and ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns (SDG 12) and take urgent action to combat climate change and its impact (SDG 13).

He mentors young people interested in science and shares his story and actively pursuing activities in science communication to make science easily understandable in Ghana.
