Hany Farid, PhD, Chief Technology Officer

At the close of the last decade, Hany’s pioneering research established that it was possible to detect in images traces of tampering that were imperceptible to the human eye, leading the NOVA science program to refer to him as the “father” of digital image forensics. Since then, Hany has continued to advance the state of the art in digital forensics while lending his expertise to law enforcement, the courts, and the media. He received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from the University of Rochester in 1989, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997. He was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT for two years.  Since 1999, Hany has served on the faculty at Dartmouth College as a Professor of Computer Science. Hany has published over 100 technical papers in the fields of digital forensics, image processingcomputer vision, and human perception, and is the recipient of an NSF CAREER award, a Sloan Fellowship and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
