  • Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’m Radha. I have a PhD in theoretical quantum physics, and I work at IBM Quantum.

    I write speculative fiction as R. P. Sand; points here too!

    As a writer, I bridge the gap between sci-fi and real science, explain quantum concepts in layperson terms, and create speculative fiction as “R. P. Sand.”

    As a scientific advisor, I help sci-fi creators harness science to bring their stories to life.

    As a physicist, I’m interested in quantum computing and outreach. My latest journal publication is on quantum key distribution, and I’ve built a couple of cool quantum apps.
