Prof Ahmed Bouridane


Department: Computer and Information Sciences


Ahmed Bouridane received the "Ingenieur d'Etat" degree in electronics from "Ecole Nationale Polytechnique" of Algiers (ENPA), Algeria, in 1982, the M.Phil. degree in electrical engineering (VLSI design for signal processing) from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, U.K., in 1988, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (computer vision) from the University of Nottingham, U.K., in 1992. From 1992 to 1994, he worked as a Research Developer in telesurveillance and access control applications.  In 1994, he joined Queen's University Belfast, Belfast, U.K., initially as Lecturer in computer architecture and image processing and later on he was promoted to Reader in Computer Science.  He is now a full Professor in Image Engineering and Security at Northumbria University at Newcastle (UK), and his research interests are in imaging for forensics and security, biometrics, homeland security, image/video watermarking and cryptography.  He has authored and co-authored more than 250 publications and one research book. Prof. Bouridane is a Senior Member of IEEE.
