Liston Lab Light Field Microscopy Pipeline

Light field microscopes are regular microscopes that have been retrofitted with a microlens array. With those extra lenses, researchers can create a 3D model of the object a microscope is focusing on. The code to turn 2D images into 3D images, LFAnalyze, is a pipeline that runs a series of steps on a cluster of up to 300 nodes.

Converge — Ports Hackathon

In its 2016 “Visions of Future Shipping” paper, Wärtsilä proposed ideas that could change the way that shipping companies operate in the future. One of the most novel ideas was ships traveling in convoy. Researchers at MIT explain that “like birds and fighter jets flying in formation, or bikers and race car drivers drafting in packs, vehicles experience less aerodynamic drag when they drive close together.” For the 2017 Ports and Logistics Hackathon, we set about to take create a platform for helping ships to form convoys for 10 - 20% in improved fuel efficiency.
