Hello, I am Rohini. I am a Professor at the centre for High Energy Physics in the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, I have been here for 25 years now, the longest I have ever been at any Institute and by 31st July will be an honorary professor here after retiring or superannuating, as they call it technically. I started my life in physics with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Mathematics and Statistics from Sir Parshurambhau college of Pune with a first rank in the University going to get an M.Sc. in Physics from IIT ( Mumbai) with a silver Medal and then getting a Ph.D. from S.U.N.Y. at Stony Brook in U.S.A in 1979. The latest degree I got was a D.Litt. (Honoris Causa) by the S.N.D.T Women’s University. Have a look at the short or long CV below if you want to know more details of my academic life.

If you want to look at my current list of publications take a look at here

You may also want to take a look at the list of publications as available in the INSPIRE-HEP data base here. This also gives an analysis here

I really enjoy teaching. Of course I teach at the Indian Institute of Science. The latest set of lectures I gave here were on MSSM phenomenology, a course based on some chapters of my SUSY book. If you want to see list of some recent courses I gave at IISc see the list here.

If you want to see some lectures I gave outside of IISc in the past five year see this list here.

I love talking about physics and give many talks in the course of an year. These are a few of the talks I have given recently. (Complete List)

Other than doing physics, I love talking to young students in schools and colleges not just about the world of particle physics but also my other interest viz. increasing women’s participation in Science in India. I give popular talks about physics and about women in science to adult audiences as well. You will find a list of such talks given recently here.

I have been involved in working for women in science . You can see more details here.

I love reading , spending my time watching some of the BBC serialization of John Le Carre books or Father Brown stories or the ageless Columbo!!
