I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences at City, University of London. I am part of the Information Engineering & Medical Imaging Group and I also collaborate closely with the Biomedical Engineering Research Group.

My undergraduate degree is from the National University in Mexico (UNAM, Facultad de Ingeniería) in 1993 with the degree of Ingeniero Mecánico Electricista, (BSc Mechanical and Electrical Engineering). I then obtained an MSc in Communications & Signal Processing and DIC from Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine in 1994. From 1995 until 2000 I worked in Mexico for several years as a Lecturer at ITESM and ITAM teaching Communications and Electromagnetics related subjects. From 2001 until 2004 I returned to the United Kingdom to obtain a Ph.D. in Computer Science under the supervision of Dr Abhir Bhalerao in the area of Medical Image Analysis with a thesis on Multiresolution Volumetric Texture Segmentation. At the same time, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick. 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 of London in July 2013.

Research Interests

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 of these images or videos 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 qualitative analysis.

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 for 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.
