Hi, I’m Zion Basque a native Hawaiian hacker, better known as mahaloz. I’m a ctf player with @Shellphish and the captain of @pwndevils. I love reverse engineering, pwning, exploration robotics, and computers in general. I also so happen to be a researcher in the Arizona State University SEFCOM research lab. My research also focuses on reverse engineering, pwning, and machine learning with respects to fuzzing. My research advisor is the renowned Dr. Yan Shoshitaishvili.
