​Computer Science (CS) is the new language of science as Mathematics was until the Twentieth Century. CS generalizes mathematics toward being more versatile. In this talk we will focus on some problems in bio-medical imaging science and discuss and how we try to address them.​

​Tomography is the technology of combining data from multiple views (say, 2D camera snapshots) to create a comprehensive image (say, in 3D). In medicine tomography is used to gather knowledge about target organs or physiology inside patients without any probing surgery. In vivo molecular imaging, or gene expression analysis in real time, is a promised goal of functional imaging that targets bio-molecular process. However, it involves time-varying signals coming from inside the body. My talk is on some of the projects on nuclear imaging and fluorescent imaging data with different types of dynamics involved.​​​​
