Alex V. Popovkin, born in 1945, St. Peterlsburg, Russia, educated at the U. of St. Petersburg (1963-68), starting on a teaching career in its Dept. of Arabic Philology as Assistant Prof. (1968-77), before emigrating to the USA and settling in NYC. After 14 years in NYC (banking, Columbia University library and graduate work in linguistics there, and finally 10 years in publishing) moved to rural Bahia, Brazil, in 1991, where I still live, dividing my time between freelance indexing and local flora research.
