PhD Thesis: Automated Analysis of Time Lapse Microscopy Images
(final version submitted in January 2013)
In this thesis, we focus on cell tracking systems. We develop methods to reduce the amount of manual work while maintaining a satisfactory level of accuracy of cell tracking systems.

A video that shows an amazing tri-division of B cells. Here is an unofficial version of BibTeX style (.bst file) for Journal of Microscopy. This style was created using makebst and manual editions. Here is a LaTeX template for a generic Computer Science paper (and here is a version for Lyx). My favorite songs can be broadly categorized into energetic music and soft music.

Grab a candy and come again :)
