                Radhika did her PhD work on formal quantization techniques at the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, under Dr G Date. Her Thesis was entitled “Studies in Quantization: Methods for Constrained Systems and Semi-classical Spectra of Many-body Systems”. She was a CSIR Research Associate at Harish Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad till 2001 December after which she joined  the Physics Group at BITS  Pilani (Pilani Campus) where she was associated with the Distance Learning Programme Division. She moved  to the Goa Campus in December 2004.

Her research interests include Mathematical Physics (formal quantization), Many-body Physics (multi-particle clusters, anyon physics, fractional statistics), High Energy Physics (gravitation, string theory) and more recently, Quantum  Information and foundations of quantum mechanics.
She is passionate about teaching and tries out different methods of active learning and blended learning in her classes.
She has written a text book on Quantum Physics and Quantum Information addressed to undergraduate students, published by CRC Press in 2015

She also has an abiding interest in Indian Classical music as a vocalist and veena player.

She is also researching  the acoustic characteristics and construction mechanics of Indian musical instruments, in collaboration with the Mech Engg dept.
