Nominations of EPFL professors
The Board of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology has announced the appointment of 4 professors at EPFL.
Professor Pascal Frossard, currently Associate Professor at EPFL,was named as Full Professor of Electrical Engineering and Electronics in the School of Engineering (STI)
Pascal Frossard is an internationally recognized expert in signal and image processing. He is particularly interested in applying this expertise to intelligent systems and biomedicine. Through his appointment, EPFL is strengthening its strategic research areas. Pascal Frossard’s innovative research also combines different disciplines in the natural and engineering sciences and facilitates essential academic and industrial partnerships.
Professor Matthias Grossglauser, currently Associate Professor at EPFL,was named as Full Professor of Computer Science and Communication Systems in the School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC)
Matthias Grossglauser has made a wide range of contributions to basic research into networks, with a particular focus on data science in recent years. He has investigated problems in areas such as network alignment and has developed several algorithms. From 2016 to 2019 he was also director of the doctoral programme in computer and communication sciences at EPFL. Matthias Grossglauser’s great dedication is valued by the department, EPFL, the scientific community and regulatory authorities.
Professor Tobias Schneider, currently Tenure Track Assistant Professor at EPFL, was namedas Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering (STI)
Tobias Schneider’s area of interest covers fluid mechanics and turbulence research. His work looks in particular at the conditions and mechanisms that explain the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. By combining parallel processing power with newly developed algorithms based on dynamical systems theory, he has been able to produce new and innovative research results. Tobias Schneider was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2019.
Professor David Suter, currently Tenure Track Assistant Professor at EPFL,was namedas Associate Professor of Life Sciences in the School of Life Sciences (SV)
David Suter’s research is making an important contribution to the branch of knowledge covering the regulation of gene expression and the function of transcription factors. He has chosen to specialise in the study of individual cells and is working on the optimisation of imaging systems so as to obtain information from living cells. This enables him to answer current biological questions in the area of gene expression. David Suter is well-regarded within the academic world for his high level of dedication as well as his research.
