Présentation

Thomas Walter received his PhD from the Centre for Mathematical Morphology at Mines ParisTech in 2003 in the field of Medical Image Analysis. He then moved to the EMBL Heidelberg, where he developed methods and tools in computer vision and artificial intelligence for computational phenotyping in the group of Jan Ellenberg. In 2012, he joined the Centre for Computational Biology at Mines ParisTech, first as an independent researcher and since 2018 as director. His work focuses on Bioimage Informatics with applications to High Content Screening and Computational Pathology. In parallel, Thomas Walter continues to teach Deep Learning for Bioimage Analysis and he is also active in France Bioimaging and the GDR ImaBio. Since 2019, he holds a chair at the PaRis Artificial Intelligence Research InstitutE (PRAIRIE).
