Hello there,

I am Lukas Gerlach, a PhD student at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security microarchitecture and systems security at the rearch group of Michael Schwarz. I have a broad interest in everything security but currently focus novel architectures such as RISC-V and automated reverse engineering of CPUs. In my free time I enjoy playing CTF especially on exploitation and cryptography style challenges as part of the saarsec team.
