Rony Darazi received the M.S. degree in computer science and telecommunication engineering from Antonine Univerity (UA), Lebanon in 2005, and the Ph.D. degree in engineering sciences from the Universit catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvainla- Neuve, Belgium, in 2011. His PhD was entitled Towards a combining scheme for compression and watermarking for 3D stereo images. He is currently an Associate Professor at UA. He was a Researcher in the ICTEAM Institute at UCL from 2006 until 2012, and is a Member of the TICKET Lab at UA since 2010. His research interests include information security and digital watermarking, digital 2D and 3D image processing, sensor networks, and ehealth. Dr. Darazi is an IEEE Senior Member, he received a grant research project from the National Council for Scientific Research in Lebanon (CNRS-L) in 2016. He co-chaired the International Conference on Applied Research in Computer Science & Engineering (ICAR15), sponsored by IEEE in 2015, and has been actively involved as a Reviewer of the Signal, Image, and Video Processing Journal (Springer), IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics & Security and the International Conference on Image Processing. In 2009, he received the Best Paper Award, second prize by the Digital Watermarking Alliance and the IS&T/SPIE International Conference on Media Forensics and Security XII.
