A Navy veteran of 20+ years and with over a decade of experience in the Information Technology field, his research explores employee information security policy compliance, improving end-user and small business information security practices, and end-user computing focusing on business spreadsheet error detection . He has published in JAIS, Computers & Security, Information and Computer Security, Decision Support Systems, the Journal of Organizational and End User Computing, the Journal of Information Systems Security, and was awarded the Collins College of Business Mayo Teaching Excellence Award for 2015-2016.
Bradley Brummel is an Associate Professor of Psychology at The University of Tulsa. His research interests include employee engagement, personality in the workplace and sexual harassment and occupational intimidation. Brummel has a PhD in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of Illinois.
Dr. Rose Gamble (R. F. Gamble) is the Associate Dean for Research and Academic Affairs and Director of the Software Design Laboratory, which supports a wide-range of software engineering research and development projects. Her current research projects focus on security and functional assurance for autonomous and self-adaptive systems, funded by two contracts with the Air Force Research Laboratory. In the most recent award, Dr. Gamble oversees the effort involving collaboration with faculty from Michigan State University. Dr. Gamble also directs the Applied Research Center for Cloud of Things, which engages with industry to create experimental testbeds for developing, securing, and analyzing the impact of internet enabled devices on the business. Big data analytics, network security assessment, and algorithm analyses are involved in a currently funded project from an industry partner headquartered in Tulsa, OK. In 2015, Dr. Gamble and Robert Baird, (PhD ’11) were awarded a patent on a Multi-claim Auditable Security Token (U.S. Patent 9,038,155) that gathers service identity and message transmission data to perform web service and cloud security forensics.

John Hale is a founding member of the TU Institute of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IBCB), and a faculty research scholar in the Institute for Information Security (iSec). His research has been funded by the US Air Force, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). These projects include research in the fields of information assurance and bioinformatics. He has testified before Congress on three separate occasions as an information security expert, and in 2004 was awarded a patent on technology he co-developed to thwart digital piracy on file sharing networks. In 2000, Hale earned a prestigious NSF CAREER award for his educational and research contributions to the field of information assurance.
Peter J. Hawrylak, Ph.D. received the B.S. degree in computer engineering, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering, and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA, in 2002, 2004, and 2006 respectively.
He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a joint appointment in the Tandy School for Computer Science, at The University of Tulsa, Tulsa, OK, USA. He has published more than 40 publications and holds 14 patents in the radio frequency identification (RFID), energy harvesting, and cyber-security areas. His research interests include RFID (radio frequency identification), security for low-power wireless devices, Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and digital design.
Tyler Moore is the Tandy Professor of Cyber Security and Information Assurance in the Tandy School of Computer Science at the University of Tulsa (TU). His research focuses on security economics, cybercrime measurement, and cybersecurity policy. He is a founding Editor in Chief of the Journal of Cybersecurity, a new interdisciplinary journal published by Oxford University Press. He was a 2016-17 New America Cybersecurity Fellow. Prior to joining TU, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society (CRCS) at Harvard University, the Hess Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Wellesley College, and an assistant professor at Southern Methodist University. A British Marshall Scholar, Prof. Moore completed his PhD at the University of Cambridge, while he holds BS degrees in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from the University of Tulsa.
Mauricio Papa is an associate professor of computer science and the director of the Institute for Information Security (iSec) at The University of Tulsa. His primary research area is critical infrastructure protection. Papa has worked on cybersecurity solutions of relevance to the electric power and oil & gas sectors. Current research efforts involve nuclear reactor control systems, bridging the gap between process engineers and IT security professionals, the Internet of Things, wireless mesh networks, and the use of predictive analytics in SCADA security.
Papa holds a PhD in computer science and an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Tulsa. He earned his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Universidad Central de Venezuela.
