Hey there!

I'm Eamon Niknafs

I'm a computer science student from Southern California studying in Boston. I’m interested in security research, machine learning, and software engineering.

I am currently working at Spark! as a machine learning project manager. Recently, I've been learning about adversary emulation frameworks & pentesting, supervised, unsupervised, & deep learning concepts, and scalable serverless deployment.

I am really excited about how my adversary emulation framework project turned out! Its special features include a hybrid encryption scheme, messaging apps to disguise communication, shell code injection, and a number of measures to avoid detection. Check out the research poster below, and see my GitHub for more!
