Christian Riess received his diploma in computer science in June 2007, and his doctoral degree in January 2013, both from the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. His research as a doctoral candidate coversphysics-based and statistical features for image forensics, and the color constancy problem. From April 2013 to March 2015, he joined as a postdoctoral researcher the Radiological Sciences Lab at Stanford University. Here, he explored X-ray grating interferometers to measure phase contrast. Since 2015, he is the head of the X-ray Phase Contrast group at the Pattern Recognition Lab at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Since 2017, he is a member of the IT Security Infrastructures Lab, where he is the head of the Multimedia Security Group.
His research interests include multimedia forensics, X-ray phase contrast, and various aspects of image processing for security applications. Among other activities, Christian Riess served in the Senate and the curriculum committee of the Friedrich-Alexander-University. He has been member of the organizing committee of the local branch of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) and the Pattern Recognition Lab’s liaison member of the RoboCup robot soccer team.
