Professor Spearot received his Ph.D. in 2005 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include: Computational mechanics and materials science (including atomistic simulations and phase-field modeling), behavior of defects in materials, nanostructured materials, linking between atomistic and continuum length scales, and method development for atomistic modeling.

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) at the University of Florida. My research focuses on the security of mobile systems, with a concentration on telecommunications infrastructure and mobile devices. My research has uncovered critical vulnerabilities in cellular networks, made the first characterization of mobile malware in provider networks and offers a robust approach to detecting and combatting Caller-ID scams.…
