PhD student receives Google code funding for imaging project

David Pinto has been an enthusiastic participant in a number of open source software projects during his PhD studies co-supervised by Andrew Flaus and Kevin Sullivan.

One of David’s main contributions has been to the Octave language for image processing, which he has used extensively with light microscopy images in his project on the behaviour of histones in the nucleus. David is currently writing up his work, and has now received funding from the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) programme to help develop the Octave language to handle multidimensional (ND) images such as confocal stacks.
