Mark Shaneck received the BS degree in Computer Science and the BA degree in Mathematics from Rutgers University. After spending a few years working as a Software Engineer, he went to graduate school and received the MS and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota. He is now a member of the faculty at Liberty University’s School of Engineering and Computational Sciences as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science.
Shaneck specializes in Computer Security and Cryptography, and has a passion for developing technologies that have practical applications. His research interests span several different areas, including secure protocol design and developing techniques to secure our networks from attack.
He is interested in investigating what gains can be made in efficiency to cryptographic protocols by making realistic tradeoffs in the underlying assumptions.
