Govind S. Krishnaswami

I am a theoretical physicist. I work at the Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI) as Associate Professor.

I was a Ramanujan Fellow at CMI, an EPSRC Fellow at Durham University, a Marie Curie Fellow with Gerard 't Hooft at Utrecht and a Ph.D. student of S. G. Rajeev at Rochester.
