Dr. Matthew C. Stamm

Room: Bossone 413G



Dr. Matthew C. Stamm is an assistant professor in the Deptartment of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Drexel University, which he joined in the Fall of 2013. He leads the Multimedia and Information Security Lab (MISL) where he and his team conduct research on signal processing and information security. He is the the recipient of a 2016 National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the 2017 Drexel University College of Engineering Outstanding Early-Career Research Achievement Award.  Dr. Stamm was the General Chair of the 2017 ACM Workshop on Information Hiding and Multimedia Security (IH&MMSec).

Dr. Stamm’s research focuses on an emerging area of information security known as information forensics, which involves developing techniques to detect multimedia forgeries such as falsified images and videos. Additionally, he develops and studies anti-forensic countermeasures that an information attacker can use to disguise their forgeries. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency (DFBA).
