Jordan Jueckstock joined the Computer Science faculty in 2014. He holds a master's degree in computer science from the University of Tulsa and a bachelor's degree in computer science from Bob Jones University. His areas of interest include computer architecture, programming languages and compilers, operating systems, and system security.
While studying at the University of Tulsa, he had the opportunity to participate in several security- and forensics-focused research projects at the US Secret Service Cell Phone Forensics Facility co-located on campus. His work there included reverse-engineering full-disk encryption software, reverse-engineering portions of a proprietary mobile operation system, and writing high-speed password recovery software that ran on a dedicated cluster of graphics processing units (GPUs). His adventures in reverse-engineering continued later during a summer internship at the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), where he got to dissect malware encountered on government networks. He later spent two and a half years working for the Department of Defense as a systems software researcher and developer.
