Alumnus Matthew Stamm (Ph.D. EE ‘12; M.S. ’11, B.S. ‘04 ) recently accepted a tenured position as an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Drexel University. His focus area will be in signal processing with an emphasis on information forensics and emerging security threats. 

Currently, Stamm works as a postdoctoral researcher under Christine Yurie Kim Eminent Professor  K.J. Ray Liu, extending his Ph.D. research on developing forensic techniques to detect forged multimedia content and developing anti-forensic countermeasures to prevent forgers. 

“It is important to study anti-forensics so that we can understand an intelligent forger’s capabilities, look for weaknesses in existing forensic algorithms and identify traces left by the use of anti-forensics,” Stamm said. “Detecting traces left by anti-forensics can help us determine if a forger has attempted to manipulate a signal, then cover up his tracks.” 

In August 2012, Stamm published a paper in IEEE Transactions in Information Forensics and Security, in which he proposed the use of game theory to analyze the interaction between a forensic investigator and a forger. He also received first place in the 2012 Dean’s Doctoral Research Award Competition for his research on digital multimedia forensics. 

Stamm’s appointment at Drexel will be effective September 1. ECE wishes him the best of luck in his new position and in his future career.
