My Expertise

My expertise is defined by analysis of images acquired by various different microscopy modalities. Over the course of my studies and afterwards, I mastered a suite of advanced image analysis techniques, commonly known as Image Correlation Spectroscopy, which are useful to quantify the microscopy data of sub-cellular structures and proteins. These techniques use the correlation of the pixels' fluctuations in space and time in order to quantify the number density, co-localization and dynamics of molecules and molecular complexes, from image time series of live cells. Also, during two years of post-doctoral work, I acquired experience in both imaging and data interpretation in single-molecule approaches such as dSTORM, PALM, sptPALM. More broadly, I apply my experience of ~15 years of programming knowledge in Matlab and cellular and molecular biophysics, in order to help BMIF users and broader national and international scientific community to solve various problems and define tailored image analysis approaches to the problem at hand.

Dr Elvis Pandzic is a Lecturer and Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy Specialist at UNSW, working at Biomedical Imaging Facility (BMIF) at UNSW's Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre (MWAC). 

He received his PhD in Biological physics in 2013 at the McGill University (Canada) during which he developed novel image fluctuation correlation analysis tool allowing the study of membrane protein confinement . During his career he worked on development of several extension of these bespoke image analysis tools, by which one can quantify fluorescence microscopy images to measure protein density, oligomerization, co-localization and dynamics in live cells. His current work at BMIF involves applying those methodologies and developing and adapting the new ones tailored to answer the biomedical problems for the researchers at UNSW and beyond.
