I'm Patrick and a member of a small research-group at University Leipzig and we are working most of the time on
image processing problems concerning medical image data. I'm employed at the
Translational Centre for Regenerative Medicine and
my job is to develop or improve new or existing
solutions to given medical questions.
Usually my work comprises one of these four parts of digital image processing
I'm using Mathematica, a
commercial computer algebra system. This is on one hand quite fast for prototyping. On the other hand,
I had the great opportunity to work one of the few experts in the field of
Mathematica and 3D-Graphics,
Dr. Jens-Peer Kuska who died 2009.
After prototyping and testing of methods,
when algorithms need to be faster on real data
or on large images, I switch and write C/C++ functions which are called by the
Mathematica kernel. If algorithms can be scheduled in parallel then I'm choosing either
OpenMP or the
Intel Threading Building Blocks
and build the stuff with the
Intel C/C++ Compiler.
My operating system of choice is Ubuntu Linux, OSX and Windows (in that order). Lately, I revived interest
in the Compute Unified Device Architecture which
enables you to use processors of your graphics-card for calculations.
There are some projects I'm personally maintaining. Information about these can be found in the
projects section. Since there are sometimes things which shouldn't be kept from public there's
a publications section with papers, posters and speaks related to me.
The other stuff which is more for my personal pleasure was put in the section
interests. And for people I like or which are in my opinion of public interest there's a separate
people section. The rest is self-explanatory.
Have fun, Patrick.
