Interview with Dr. Rajeev Kini

Dr Rajeev Kini talks fondly about his childhood and where it all began for him in an interview

hosted by Into Their Minds, IISER Thiruvananthapuram. He currently works as an associate

professor at the School of Physics, IISER Thiruvananthapuram. Answering a question on the

beginning of his journey to where he is now, he says that he was blessed with understanding

and supportive parents. He was very interested in science as a child, particularly physics and

mathematics. His parents did not force him to try for engineering or medical entrance

exams but allowed him to pursue his real interests. Looking back, he thoughtfully comments

that he was quite fortunate in that aspect, compared to the other children he grew up with,

who were compelled to choose a career they may not have wanted. That began his unique

journey of study and research, culminating in his heading the Ultrafast and Terahertz

Spectroscopy lab at IISER Thiruvananthapuram since 2010.
