is full time Associate Professor in the Computer Engineering department at Yarmouk University- Jordan. He was the Assistant Dean for the Deanship of graduate studies and scentific research (2012 to 2014). His major
research areas include but not limited to: multimedia security, digital
rights management, watermarking, and information theory applications.
Previous development of multimedia security techniques has shown
promising results, and there are still a lot of open research issues. In
this direction, Dr. Al-khassaweneh has developed a high capacity
information hiding technique surviving most attacks. This method embeds
the information bits in the local autocorrelation domain of the image
and can be used for data hiding, which has many security applications. The results are forthcoming as part of various scholastic publications. Moreover,
Dr. Al-khassaweneh is pursuing a project on image encryption based on
using least square error techniques. In addition, Dr. Al-khassaweneh has
a collaboration research project with Dr. Aviyente from Michigan State University of applying information theoretic measures on brain signals.
