Dr. Hannes Mareen

Postdoc Researcher

Hannes is a Postdoctoral Researcher at IDLab-MEDIA. In 2017, he started persuing a PhD degree with the financial support of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO), which he received in 2021.

His research interests cover multimedia compression, security, and forensics. More specifically, his PhD research was mainly about video watermarking against digital piracy. He also researched image & video deepfake detection, fingerprinting, perceptual hashing, optical character recognition, dense captioning, low-delay live streaming, medical image analysis and other applications.

Moreover, Hannes has a lot of enthusiasm for science communication targeted to non-experts. For his high-level dissemination efforts, he won several awards, incl. the Agoriaprijs, two best poster awards, and the #ThesisThread competition.
