Personal Profile

Hi, I am a Ph.D student, and a member of SoftSec Lab in KAIST. Recently, my greatest interests are binary analysis, a subset of program analysis without source codes, for finding software bugs. I enjoy playing CTF(Capture The Flag)s especially solving reversing challenges. I am now a member of KaisHack and I was in KAIST GoN
