Praveen completed his B.Sc. (Chemistry), M.Sc. (Chemistry) and Master of Engineering (Polymer Science and Technology) at Delhi University in India. He joined the University of Lethbridge in Spring 2009. After completing my M.Sc. degree, majoring in fluorine chemistry and solid-state NMR spectroscopy, he pursued a Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Michael Gerken and Dr. Paul Hazendonk. His research interests are the synthesis and application of weakly coordinating anions, coordination polymers and investigation of dynamics in different materials with solid- and solution-state NMR spectroscopy.
