Anunay is an information security and technology policy researcher. He is currently a doctoral candidate in Computer Science at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University.

Anunay develops novel privacy-enhancing techniques that improve accountability of digital systems integral to our social, political, and economic lives: public auctions, private communication, foreign intelligence surveillance, content moderation, and censorship. His research spans computer security, privacy, and applied cryptography, and is motivated by gaps in current public policy.

Previously, Anunay investigated manipulation in cryptocurrency markets at the MIT Sloan School of Management, worked on a distributed encrypted filesystem at Keybase, and designed reranking models for search results at Bloomberg. As a Jane Stanford Fellow for Public Service, he worked with Member of Parliament Dr. Shashi Tharoor in his constituency of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

Anunay graduated from Stanford University with undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, and a graduate degree in Public Policy.
