Biomedical Image Analysis Recipes in MATLAB: For Life Scientists and Engineers

I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at City University London. I am part of the Department of Electrical Engineering within the school of School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering. I am also a member of the Research Centre in Biomedical Engineering.
I have several opportunities for research students there, so contact me if you are interested in Biomedical Image Analysis.
My area of research is Image Analysis of
Biomedical Images. This research covers three
particular areas: the acquisition
(I have worked with light and fluorescent
microscopes as well as access to confocal and multiphoton
microscopes) of biomedical images, the analysis through
algorithms, mathematical models and statistical
methodologies, which provide quantitative measurements,
and the interpretation
of the data (2D images, 3D volumes, 2D+t videos, 3D+t
volumetric time lapse data sets). This final stage is
crucial, what conclusions can we draw from the images? Can
we reveal something of the underlying biological processes
of cells or tumours? What are the effects of drugs or
treatments? By using image analysis we are able to extract
a wealth of information that is present in the images we
capture, and that it is not possible to obtain by simple
My overall objective is to shed some light into
the causes and processes of human illnesses
especially cancer, and the infection or inflammation processes related to this diseas. By analysing the
images and videos from many experiments I hope to and contribute
in finding ways to cure and prevent them.
I have analysed different biological processes - cell migration, vascular permeability, red cell velocity, inflammation - and this research has lead to more than 25 journal papers.
I have developed Image Analysis algorithms and software developed the following experiments:
- Tracking of fluorescently labelled Red Blood Cells,
- Quantification of vascular permeability to FITC-Dextran in tumours,
- Measurement of cell migration in vitro.
- Geometrical analysis of vessels from immunohistochemistry images stained for CD-31,
- Topological analysis of tumour vasculature in light microscopy images,
- Measurement of fluorescence intensity for vessel and perfusion quantification.
My undergraduate degree is
University in Mexico
Facultad de Ingeniería) in 1993 with the degree
of Ingeniero Mecánico Electricista, (BS
Electrical Engineering). I then obtained an M.Sc. (MSc
and Signal Processing) and D.I.C. from Imperial
College of Science Technology and
Medicine in 1994. From 1995 until 2000 I worked in
several years as a Lecturer at ITESM
Communications and Electromagnetics related
subjects. From 2001
until 2004 I returned to the United Kingdom to obtain a
Computer Science under the supervision of Dr.
Bhalerao in the area of Medical Image Analysis
Multiresolution Volumetric Texture Segmentation. At the
same time, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at
of Computer Science,
From 2005 to 2011 I worked as a Research Associate and
then Research Fellow at The
University of Sheffield in the Tumour
Microcirculation Group. In May 2011 I joined the
University of Sussex as a Lecturer in Biomedical
Engineering. I moved to City University London in July 2013.
