Mourad Ouaret received his Master degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in the field of information and communication systems.

Then, he joined Emitall surveillance as a software engineer working on privacy protection for video surveillance.

Afterwards, He joined the Multimedia Signal Processing Group (MMSPG) as a research assistant and received his PhD in technical science from EPFL with the thesis entitled “Selected Topics on Distributed Video Coding”. In parallel, he worked as a consultant for Emitall surveillance in the field of video surveillance.

He is currently working as a postdoc in the field of biometrics at EURECOM.
