Jeffrey Pawlick

Jeffrey M. Pawlick studies cyber security and information privacy from an interdisciplinary approach that includes dynamic systems and game theory.  His work has addressed problems in phishing, network security, the internet of things, and security education, always from the perspective of trying to obtain transferable results and work making security more of a science – and always with a colon in the title. 

A PhD candidate at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, Jeffrey holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY).  From Saratoga Springs, NY, he also enjoys hiking and skiing in the Adirondack Mountains and complicated board games.
