This special issue is devoted to celebrating the scientific career and impact of Prof. Prabhat K. Gupta, the 2018 winner of the Sir Nevill F. Mott Award from the Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids. While the rest of this issue focuses on the latest groundbreaking research in topics related to Prabhat's research interests, in the current article we look back and review some of the remarkable research achievements and impact that Prabhat has had over his career. Prabhat is known for his deep and thoughtful approach to a wide range of topics in both experimental and theoretical glass science, with particular emphasis on glass structure and topology, thermodynamics, and kinetic processes including diffusion, relaxation, and crystallization. In this article, the three authors each offer their own perspectives on the impact and legacy of Prabhat's research.
