Professor, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Samuel Lomonaco has been a professor in UMBC’s Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Department for more than 25 years, serving as Founding Chair of the Computer Science Department 1985 to 1991. He teaches a wide variety of courses including Algebraic Coding Theory, Cryptology, Quantum Computation, Design & Analysis of Algorithms, Discrete Structures, Symbolic Computation, Automata Theory, Theory of Processes, Numerical Computation. Prior to joining UMBC’s faculty, Lomonaco worked in both government and industry carrying out a research program in signal processing and secure
communications at such organizations as the Communication Division of the Institute for Defense Analyses, at Army Research Laboratories, and at Texas Instruments.
Lomonaco is actively involved in his research. His research interests and research contributions span a wide range of subjects including quantum algorithms, quantum cryptography, algebraic coding theory, cryptography, algorithms, knot theory, algebraic and differential topology, and symbolic computation. He has published many research papers in refereed journals, and also has published five books, four on Quantum Computation and Quantum Information Science, and one on low dimensional topology. He is a frequent invited speaker at research conferences. More detailed information can be found on his website.
He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Princeton University.
