likes computers & math
I'd like to see as much computer science and pure mathematics as I can. Embedded systems, where programmers have creative freedom over hardware, software, and the bridge between the two, are my favorite.
Some of my favorite personal projects include:
hyperfast operating system for retro games
high abstraction assembler with types
MSpaint as an operating system
portable memory allocator in assembly
6502 emulator + game console
I currently focus on cybersecurity. As a member of the United States' #1 competitive cybersecurity team, DiceGang, I work with government organizations like the United States AFA, Aéroports de Paris, Saudi FCSP, and UAE Cybersecurity Council and blockchain organizations like the Solana Foundation, the Sui Blockchain, and Aptos Labs to make the internet safer.
As an academic researcher, I've done guest lectures on 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!
