Anu Unnikrishnan

Hello! I'm Anu.

I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher in the applied cryptography group at ETH Zürich.
Before this, I was a PhD student in quantum cryptography at the University of Oxford,
and a visiting researcher at LIP6, Sorbonne Université.

Programming

Some fun projects from my time at the Recurse Center (2020):
Christmas Movie Generator · a Markov chain writes a hit Christmas movie.
M-ai-ze Solver · escaping from a maze using reinforcement learning.
London Bookshops · a map of independent bookshops in London.
Scrabble Bot · creating a crazy good Scrabble AI.
Baby Lisp · a very simple Lisp interpreter.
UFO Visualiser · mapping UFO sightings across the USA.
Neural Networks · building a neural network from scratch.
National Park Genie · inspiration for hikes in US national parks.
Tic-Tac-Toe · how to make an AI that will never lose a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.
