Jeffrey Pawlick

Jeffrey Pawlick studies strategic trust and deception in cyber-physical systems (CPS) and Internet of controlled things (IoCT).  Security in these heterogeneous  and dynamic systems requires new frameworks and equilibrium concepts. CPS and IoCT security motivate incentive-compatible mechanism design due to competition between benign agents in addition to attack threats from malicious actors. To capture these factors Jeffrey leverages game theory and dynamic systems together with psychological insights that inspire attack models as well as models for defensive deception. A Ph.D. candidate at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, Jeffrey holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY).
