Hi, I am Ben Mezger, but I generally use seds as an alias. I am interrested in computer security [1] and operating systems [2] and computer architecture [3].

I am both German and Dutch, though I mostly grew up in The Netherlands. Right now, I am doing a sort of university exchange in Brazil – sort of because I am doing my full bachelor here, so I am not here from an European University, instead, I decided to move around a bit and find a university outside Europe.

At the time of this writing, I am working at Cheesecake Labs
