Pascal Vallotton leads the Quantitative Imaging group at CSIRO. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in biophysics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne and holds an M.S. in physics from the same institution. Vallotton is an expert in the biophysics of membrane proteins. He completed a postdoctoral in ETH Zurich in the area of fluorescent speckle microscopy in the Danuser lab in 2001. His main contribution was to pioneer novel graph-based tracking algorithms to deal with the complexity in the corresponding image data. Vallotton then spent two years in the software industry where he contributed to the development of a number of award winning software. He then joined CSIRO where he and his colleagues are focusing on automation for the life sciences and other application domains. Vallotton's interests lie at the intersection of quantitative biology, imaging, and mathematics.
