My interests lie primarily in computer security, with a strong focus on reversing and binary exploitation. In the last years I played many CTFs together with my friends of c00kies@venice, including three consecutive RuCTF Finals in Yekaterinburg (RU) culminated in an epic 2nd place. In 2017, I was one of the Google CTF Quals write-up winners; in 2018, I have held some classes for the bright guys of CyberChallenge.IT/VE. I regularly update my list of interesting resources about pwning stuff and sometimes publish solutions to CTF challenges.
Lastly, I found myself intrigued by machine learning: my experiments with it include a basic convolutional network in plain Python and a classification of handwritten Chinese characters. More recently, I developed an API to access OpenAI Gym via Unix domain sockets and tested it on a C++ implementation of the asynchronous advantage actor-critic (A3C) algorithm.
