David Svoboda is an associate professor at the Department of visual computing of the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science with a thesis on segmentation of volumetric histo-pathological images. He spent his half-year research visit at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK in the signal processing group where he focused on the problems on edge detection using the statistic tests. Since 2006 he has been with the Centre for biomedical image analysis at Masaryk University. His research fields include the manipulation of huge image data and the generation of synthetic microscopy image data, both static and time-lapse sequences.
