Anna Brandenberger
PSI masters' Perimeter Institute

I am a PSI masters' student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. I'm also building Curius, a social bookmarker - check it out!

My research interests include probability theory (statistical physics, random discrete structures, probabilistic analysis of algorithms), quantum information theory and reinforcement learning.

Previously, I studied physics & CS (with a dash of math) at McGill University, doing research with Luc, Louigi, Prakash and others. During that time, I also had the pleasure of working with great people from organizations such as SUMS, McGill NeuroTech and the McGill Classical Music Club.

When I'm not scribbling mathematical nonsense, you can find me reading Dostoevsky, creating my next oddly specific Spotify playlist or playing piano and cursing Rachmaninov's handspan.




Here are some relevant publications - for a complete list, see my Google Scholar.

For more samples of code written at 2am, see my GitHub.

Here are a few things I’ve written for various classes on topics that I thought were cool, feel free to check them out (or not)

I also have some nicely typeset notes for some introductory math and CS classes on a GitHub repo - drop a star if they're useful to you!
