Hi, I’m Zion Leonahenahe Basque a native Hawaiian hacker, better known as mahaloz (mahal0z on Twitter). I’m a previous co-captain of the ctf team Shellphish. I love reverse engineering, decompilation, and binary analysis. I’m a PhD student in the Arizona State University SEFCOM research lab. My research also focuses on reverse engineering, with special regard to decompilation. My research advisors are the renowned Dr. Fish Wang & Dr. Yan Shoshitaishvili.

This is my technical blog. I post all things hacking-related here. If you want to learn more about me professionally, check out my professional page zionbasque.com. If you want to get a hold of me, just shoot me an email – I’ll likely invite you to the Shellphish/ASUHC discord for further communication.
