Isis Lovecruft

My name is Isis Agora Lovecruft, and I’m in my early twenties. I do lots of things and wander to lots of places.

I double-majored in Theoretical Physics and English Literature, the latter with a specialisation in Feminist Critical Theory. I intend to continue my formal education, and I hope to eventually attain a doctorate in Theoretical Physics and contribute towards current research on unified field theories. I’m also interested in nanoscience research, quantum cryptography, and string cosmology.

I am an anarchist. When I say that I am an anarchist, I do not simply mean that I would like to see the State destroyed, social hierarchies crumble, and state capitalism perish. I mean that I believe inequalities in power dynamics pose a hindrance to the progression of human thought and scientific understanding, that the overall degrees of freedom for collected conscious agents should be maximized, and that all forms of government are intrinsically immoral due to their disregard of individual consent.

I’m highly interested in cryptography and security, and I occasionally provide workshops and lectures on digital security topics for free to activist groups. My research topics of interest are anonymity, secure communications, quantum cryptography, plain ol’ vanilla cryptography, darknets, steganography, artificial intelligences and neural networks, and pen-testing methodology. I spend the majority of my time writing code: currently I contribute to the development of a censorship detection framework, OONI, as part of my work for The Tor Project, and I have just begun working on Leap Encryption Access Project as well.
