Hi and welcome to my little corner of the web. I’m Chillu Annamalai, a software engineer and mountaineer living in the beautiful city of Zurich. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, an honest day of work, waking up in the mountains, and other simple pleasures.

This is my personal blog and here you can find some of my attempts to articulate my ideas and thoughts on topics such as people, culture, math, and computer science.

One of my deepest passions is the art of solving problems. I love the analytical process and find the creative and logical elements of problem solving irresistible. So much so that I simply enjoy the journey of deduction even at times when solutions remain out of reach. The eclectic mix of topics I write about here is intentional and reflects my belief that problem solving is a wide-ranging activity. And the tools we use to solve problems often carry over to other domains with surprising versatility too. This blog explores my take on this phenomenon and my love for problem solving in general.

I hope you find something you like here. You are welcome to leave a comment or shoot me an email through the contact form. I always appreciate useful feedback!

All opinions expressed here are obviously mine unless explicitly stated otherwise.
