He earned his B.Sc. (HONS) in Computer Science from the Universiti Sains Malaysia in 2009 and his M.Sc. in Engineering (Software Systems Engineering) which is based on the RWTH Aachen University Model syllabus, from King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok in 2011.

Mr. Shankar was awarded the ASTS position by USM based on his excellent performance, both curricular and co-curricular, during his bachelor studies. This position entitles him to pursue his studies up to a PhD in the field of Network Security with funding from USM under the ASTS programme.

During his M.Sc. studies, he was also awarded a DAAD scholarship by the German government for the duration of his master’s programme. This includes a one-year funding in Bangkok, Thailand (coursework only) and another in Aachen, Germany to conduct his internship and master’s thesis. He completed his thesis entitled “Selective Forwarding Attack: Detecting Colluding Nodes in Wireless Mesh Networks” at RWTH Aachen University (Informatik 4) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Otto Spaniol. In his thesis work, he managed to successfully develop an algorithm, which detects malicious cooperating routers that selectively refuse to relay packets in a wireless mesh network. His algorithm is also able to distinguish the attacks from normal packet losses such as medium access collisions and bad channel quality.
