The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies are proud to announce that Professor Min Wu is one of the University of Marylands five 2013-2014 Distinguished Scholar-Teachers. The program honors faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in their fields and the classroom, and who represent what a professor at a world-class university should be.
With the wide adoption of media-oriented mobile devices and proliferation of social media networks, multimedia information is gaining momentum and making a strong social impact. In the mean time, a number of information forensic and provenance questions arise: using image as an example, we would like to know how an image was generated, where an image was from, what has been done on the image since its creation, by whom, when and how. This talk will provide a backstage tour of some of the technology advances on information forensics, including research done at the University of Maryland that explores a variety of invisible traces.
Min Wu is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher at the University of Maryland, College Park. She received her Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Princeton University in 2001. At UMD, she leads the Media and Security Team (MAST), with main research interests on information security and forensics and multimedia signal processing. Her research and education have been recognized by a NSF CAREER award, a TR100 Young Innovator Award from the MIT Technology Review Magazine, an ONR Young Investigator Award, a Computer World 40 Under 40 IT Innovator Award, a University of Maryland Invention of the Year Award, an IEEE Mac Van Valkenburg Early Career Teaching Award, a University of Maryland Robert Kent Junior Faculty Teaching Award, and several paper awards. Dr. Wu is chairing the IEEE Technical Committee on Information Forensics and Security (2012-2013) and has served as Vice President - Finance of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2010-2012) and Technical Program Co-Chair of the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing. She is an IEEE Fellow.
