A physicist born to a political science & economics professor and a history teacher, Ilamaran's interests have always been a superposition of science and its impact on society. Currently, he works for a company at the forefront of quantum technology. “Quantum” is on the verge of reshaping tech culture. Ultimately, the inquiry of science has a direct consequence to betterment of life, and more importantly has a far-reaching responsibility to give access and equality in a rapidly globalizing world. His contribution, apart from his involvement in the tech industry, is to hopefully disseminate information and science policy discussions to the readers of Quo Vademus.
