Sammy Hajhamid

really likes computers & math

I secure the blockchain at OtterSec and develop the future of finance at Zellic's Quantitative Research Lab.

My hope is to see as much computer science and pure mathematics as I can. I specifically love embedded systems, where programmers have creative freedom over hardware, software, and the bridge between the two.

I currently focus on cybersecurity. As a member of the United States' #1 competitive cybersecurity team, DiceGang, I work closely with national government organizations like the United States Department of the Air Force, France's Aéroports de Paris, Saudi Federation for Cyber Security and Programming, and UAE Cybersecurity Council as well as blockchain organizations such as the Solana Foundation, the Sui Blockchain, and Aptos Labs to make the internet—and world—a safer place.

As an academic researcher, I've done guest lectures on the theory of exploitation at the HOPE Security Symposium, Carnegie Mellon University, and EPFL Innovation Park. Check out this piece on exploiting one-byte writes in standard libraries!
