Pedram Amini currently leads the security research and product security assessment team at TippingPoint. Previously, he was the assistant director and one of the founding members of iDefense Labs. Despite the fancy titles he spends much of his time in the shoes of a reverse engineer- developing automation tools, plug-ins and scripts. His most recent projects (aka "babies") include the PaiMei reverse engineering framework and the Sulley fuzzing framework.
In conjunction with his passion, he launched OpenRCE.org, a community website dedicated to the art and science of reverse engineering. He has presented at RECon, BlackHat, DefCon, ShmooCon and ToorCon and taught numerous sold out reverse engineering courses. Pedram holds a computer science degree from Tulane University.
