The David Copperfield Stuff
I was born in the town of Palakkad (usually anglicized to Palghat) in the beautiful state of Kerala, in the southwestern corner of India. I spent my childhood in the city of Madras. As an undergraduate, I was at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. I received my Ph.D. in Physics from Boston University. Currently I am with the Nuclear Futures Laboratory and the Program in Science and Global Security at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
