You can use the Inkscape extension Tex Text to insert and render LaTeX within your Inkscape graphics.

You can find the latest version here. I'll include all the commands I ran below to get this up and running with the current latest version of Tex Text and Inkscape 0.91 r13725

wget http://pav.iki.fi/software/textext/textext-0.4.4.tar.gz

tar -xvzf textext-0.4.4.tar.gz

cp textext.inx textext.py .config/inkscape/extensions/

Restart inkscape (if required).

Within Inkscape and you can find the new extension under Extensions > Tex Text.
Type in some LaTeX text and it will insert the rendered text into your document.

I decided that instead of taking an industry job after I graduated I would instead embark on a PhD in Computer Science. As much as I really enjoy writing code, and software engineering in general, the opportunity to do research in CS was just too appealing to turn down. Research is something that has interested me for some time now and working on my undergraduate final year project helped convince me that I wanted to continue in academia. Of course I will still be writing code throughout my PhD (both academically and as a hobby) so it's a win-win in my mind. I'm really looking forward to the challenge.

Broadly speaking, the topics in which I am interested are data mining, machine learning, anomaly detection and graph theory.

It has been a few weeks since I have started and I'm enjoying it a lot.
