Sagar Samtani is an assistant professor with the Muma College of Business's Information Systems and Decision Sciences Department. He comes to USF from the University of Arizona's Management Information Systems Department where he designed and developed cyber threat intelligence courses in the master's program. He also taught undergraduate courses in computers and internetworked society and in 2016, he earned the James F. LaSalle Award for Teaching Excellence.
His research interests are within the cybersecurity domain, specifically on cyber threat intelligence and large-scale vulnerability assessment. Samtani employs and develops novel data/text/web mining algorithms and systems, specifically, deep learning and network analysis within these contexts. His work has been published in several journals, including the Journal of Management Information Systems and IEEE Intelligent Systems. He has presented at several conferences including Woman in Cybersecurity, IEEE Intelligence and Security Informatics and the INFORMS annual meeting.
Samtani received a bachelor's and a master's degree in management information systems from the University of Arizona and a PhD in management information systems from the same institution. He served as National Science Foundation Scholarship-for-Service Fellow from 2014-17.
