PhD Project Summary

I am a postgraduate research student at the University of Kent, studying for a PhD in video steganography and steganalysis.

My current research focuses towards the applications of video steganalysis. Through this, I develop techniques to detect the presence of steganography in video files and link the embedding algorithms to their respective tools.

My research is carried out in two parts. The first examines innovative embedding algorithms for video steganography. Here I identify vulnerabilities and exploits that will either prove the existence of video steganography or allow for the extraction of embedded contents. The second part to my research is involved with the development of an automated web search framework and detection algorithm that aims to traverse the internet for the presence of video steganography.

Research Interests

I am a member of the following research groups:

My primary area of interest is video steganography and steganalysis. I have a keen research interest in novel embedding algorithms that have not yet been subjected to academic steganalysis.

I am also particularly interested in digital forensics, anti-forensics and similar areas of computer security.
