Vivek got his Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. He then worked in a software company for a couple of years, before deciding that studying Physics would be more fun. He got his PhD degree from Johns Hopkins University working with Collin Broholm. On his way, he sputtered some thin films, did some lithography, but mainly scattered some neutrons. The idea was to try and contribute to the understanding of quantum magnetism and high temperature superconductivity. As a postdoc, he now uses soft x-rays to investigate such strongly correlated systems as cuprates and iron based superconductors.
