PostDoc in Computerized Image Analysis

Welcome to the homepage of Maxime Bombrun
I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and currently hold a PostDoc position in the Center for Image Analysis in the Department of Information Technology of Uppsala University in Sweden.
I am looking for new challenging projects in which I will be able to applied the knowledge I developed through the Geo- and the Bio-Imaging.
I am also curious about new domains of application for image analysis such as astronomy and oceanography.
Here, you will find information about my main research interests, my teaching activities and some personal information.

    Large-Scale Data Analysis for Digital Image Analysis Applications

    • Developing an open-source tool which combine the analysis of gene expression with quantification of cell and tissue morphology.
    • In charge of a web platform for visualisation of large slide scanner images at different resolutions.
    • As an additional project, development of an image processing algorithm for nucleus and lipid droplet segmentation and feature extraction in high-content/high-throughput microscopy screening.

    Characterisation of Volcanic Emissions through Thermal Vision

    • Developed an algorithm to segment and track high-speed particles recorded on thermal videos.
    • Designed a novel method to segment and parameterise volcanic plumes on thermal videos.
    • Developed an algorithm to detect multiple change points in 2D radiometer data.
    • Worked on a new process to detect hot spots in satellite imagery.

  • April 2012 - September 2012

    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Berkeley, USA


    Java applications development for Detection and Tracking of DNA repair centers
    The aim of this project was to improve the understanding of the nucleid organisation and the spatial distribution of the DNA repair center. Due to the large amount of data involved, I translated the existing codes in Java. Then, I developed an algorithm to segment, track and register nucleid through time.

  • April 2011 - September 2011

    Laboratoire des Sciences de l'Habitat
    Lyon, France


    iPhone application development for lighting design
    I developed an iPhone application to model luminance maps in interior spaces: iPhotoLux. I carried out several experiments to calibrate the camera of the iPhone4. Then, I updated an application which provides daily brightness data of a position to optimise photovoltaic panels unfolding.
