I am a theoretical physicist working as a Professor at the Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI).
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. Email: govind at cmi dot ac point in |
