Bio

Born and raised in a city in the interior of Brazil, I wrote my first lines of code at the age of 14, after that I found myself falling in love with the computing universe and the offensive security area. When I finished high school, I moved to greater São Paulo to start my career so far in software development and, two years later, I finally managed to fulfill my dream and work with Information Security.


About

After two years working in the software development area in the Brazilian government, I worked as an Information Security Analyst in a Red Team with some amazing Brazilian Security Companies of Consulting, like: OGASEC, Deloitte Brazil and CIPHER; and after this I decided to start a career as an Independent Researcher so that I could concentrate on things that really made sense to with my purpose.

I am fascinated by the area of offensive security, so I spend many hours studying this segment. In the past, I won some prizes: first place at Bsides São Paulo 16th CTF and Hackaflag qualification in 2019 and first place at Campinas Hackathon in 2017.


Research

Aligning my life purpose (create technologies that help people and groups take control of their own information) with my work, I decided to cover the subjects below as the main areas of my research:

  • Application Security;
  • Privacy/anonymity algorithms;
  • Construction of security tools;

And during that research time (until then short) I was able to build some Open Source tools that are available on my Github in addition I audited some applications/software that earned me some security adivisories:
