Hello, whoever you are, and welcome to my blog ().

I'm mainly a researcher in the field of cybersecurity and applied cryptography, but from time to time I also try to write about the human experience.

If you happen to be interested in my writings, why not subscribe to the RSS feed of this blog.

For technical notes, code, and other things of the sort, check out my public archive of knowledge as well as my academy, which is a small search engine for all the content I create for my youtube channel.
