I am a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. K. J. Ray Liu's Signals and Information Group (SIG) at the University of Maryland, College Park. There, I lead the Information Forensics and Security subgroup consisting of Xiaoyu Chu and Zhung-Han Wu.
I earned my Ph.D. in electrical engineering in August 2012 at the University of Maryland, College Park. For my dissertation research, I was named the first place winner of the Dean's Doctoral Research Award from the A. James Clark School of Engineering.
I conduct research in an emerging area of information security known as digital multimedia forensics. Digital multimedia forensics involves the development of mathematical techniques to identify multimedia forgeries such as falsified images and videos. I also perform research on anti-forensic operations designed to fool forensic techniques. By studying anti-forensics, researchers can identify and address weaknesses in existing forensic techniques as well as develop techniques capable of identifying the use of anti-forensics. Additionally, I am interested in security in emerging areas such as smart grid power distribution technologies and biometrics, and multimedia signal processing in general. For more information, please see my research page.
In addition to winning the Dean's Doctoral Research Award, I was one of 40 University of Maryland graduate students to be awarded a 2011 Ann G. Wylie Dissertation Fellowship. In 2010, I was selected as one of the A. James Clark School of Engineering's Future Faculty Fellows. From May 2010 through May 2011 I served as a member of the University Senate, the advisory board to the University President, where I was the chair of the Student Affairs Committee. Additionally, from September 2009 through August 2010 I served as a vice-president of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Graduate Student Association (ECE GSA).
Prior to my graduate studies, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park in May 2004. After graduating, I worked full time at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU APL) from June 2004 to September 2005, and again during the summer of 2006.
