Kevin Watson

I have completed application security penetration tests for a wide variety of technologies professionally and created personal experiments to learn about new technologies, myself, and my environment. I'm keen to apply statistical and signal processing methods to data for interpretation and visualization.

I'm fascinated by the challenges of cryptography, not so much cryptocurrency, and am experimenting with CI/CD processes to improve the development experience of my projects and experiments.

I write about new topics and those that I am expected to understand but don't sit comfortably in my brain. I hope to turn stream of consciousness questions into explanations built on references and verifiable experiments. After many revisions of course. Please be sympathetic to my ignorance, struggles, and attempts to go back to first principles.

I earned a degree in electrical and biomedical engineering and am an Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP). I understand French and am trying to improve my speaking and writing. Qu├ębec's security community has impressed me.

I am looking for work. The role does not need to be related to security. I am prepared to be humble. Resume (PDF)
