Praveen Linga is an associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and co-lead for natural gas research in the centre for energy research and technology (CERT) at NUS. His research interests are in the areas of clathrate (gas) hydrates, storage and transport of fuels, carbon dioxide capture, storage & utilization (CCS & U) and recovery of energy. He is interested in both fundamental and applied aspects of research. His research group at NUS particularly focuses on enhancing the kinetics of hydrate formation for several systems of interest pertaining to carbon dioxide capture, storage and transport of natural gas as hydrates, sea water desalination and the recovery of natural gas from hydrate deposits. Up to date, he has published more than 70 research articles and delivered about 50 keynote/invited talks and seminars. His publications have received four "most cited paper" awards from highly reputed journals in engineering and his research has been cited more than 3350 times with an h index of 31. He has won numerous local and international awards including the 2017 NUS Young Researcher Award, the 2017 NUS Engineering Young Researcher Award, the 2017 Energies Young Investigator Award and the 2017 Donald W. Davidson Young Researcher Award for outstanding contributions to gas hydrate research.
