Randall Boyle

Associate Professor of Information Systems and Security

Dr. Boyle’s research specialties include deception detection in computer-mediated environments, secure information systems, the effects of IT on cognitive biases, the effects of IT on knowledge workers and e-commerce.

He is the author of several textbooks and articles in academic journals, and he has conducted and published research on deception detection. One of his published studies, “Predicting Deceptive  Behavior: Exploring antecedents to deceptive behaviors,” used a questionnaire he developed that he says can predict a person’s “propensity to deceive” with much higher accuracy than similar models.
