I am a PhD candidate at Binghamton University (NY). My research focus is on Machine Learning and Deep Learning and their applications in digital media security such as Steganography/Steganalysis or Watermarking. I also hold a MSc in Computer Science/Machine Learning from École Centrale de Lille (France).


Sep 16, 2020 I am a co-instructor of record of a new graduate level course at Binghamton University: Deep Learning for ECE! Read about it here.
Jul 1, 2020 My team placed 2nd at the Alaska2 Steganalysis challenge on Kaggle! Read about it here.
May 31, 2020 Our paper “An Intriguing Struggle of CNNs in JPEG Steganalysis and the OneHot Solution” is accepted at IEEE SPL. Read about it here.
Jan 30, 2019 We ranked first in the Alaska1 Steganalysis challenge ALASKA, Learn more here.
