New Faculty: Murtuza Jadliwala Joins UTSA CS Department

Dr. Murtuza Jadliwala joined the UTSA Department of Computer Science as an Assistant Professor starting Spring 2018.

Jadliwala earned his bachelors degree in Computer Engineering from Mumbai University in 2000 and both his masters and doctoral degrees in Computer Science in 2004 and 2008 respectively from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

His research interests are broadly in the area of systems and network security and privacy, where he is currently investigating security and privacy threats in human-centered and mobile cyber-physical systems, such as wearable devices, and in socio-technical systems, such as online social networking and crowd-sourcing services.

Jadliwala directs the Security, Privacy, Trust, and Ethics (SPriTE) lab at UTSA, where he and his team will conduct basic and applied research in all areas related to systems and network security and    privacy.

Besides graduate research and education, an important mission of the  SPriTE lab is to involve undergraduate and high-school students, especially minority and under-represented students, in security and privacy research by means of specialized camps and research opportunities.

Jadliwala’s research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Information Institute. He was selected as an AFOSR Summer Faculty Fellow in 2015.
