Video Segmentation Research Featured on Cover of IEEE Transactions on Image Processing

Electrical and computer engineering professor Bir Bhanu and graduate student Asong Tambo

UC Riverside Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. student Asongu Tambo’s research on video segmentation has been featured on the cover page of the May 2016 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing.

This work, which was conducted with Tambo’s adviser, Bourns Presidential Chair and Distinguished Professor Bir Bhanu, focuses on obtaining a unified segmentation of a growing pollen tube cell by using information captured in videos of two different imaging modalities (fluorescence and brightfield images). It proposed a new efficient method of obtaining the cell boundary through the process of seam carving. This research has the potential for real time applications in pollen tube microscopy for understanding the growth of plants.

Asongu was an NSF IGERT Fellow in the Video Bioinformatics program at UC Riverside and graduated with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in June 2016.
