Hey there, I'm Neil. I like running, building things, and Mexican food. I am a Turing Scholar studying Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin. I'm interested in computer security and robotics, and any potential overlap of the two.
I'm co-president of ISSS. We run biweekly Capture-the-Flag competitions for students at UT, and teach students basic security fundamentals. I also regularly compete in CTFs under the team name "Steam Locomotive".
I'm also on the board of the Turing Scholars Student Association, where we provide mentorship and create events to improve the Turing Scholars community.
Here are some of the things I've built or researched.
