Biographical Information

Tommaso Mazza was born in Catanzaro, Italy, on 8 June 1979. He studied Computer Science Engineering at the University of Calabria and received a PhD in Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering in November 2007 from the ‘Magna Græcia’ University of Catanzaro. In 2004, he worked on the Cofin 2003 Project titled “Hereditary tumors: genetic studies and proteomic analysis”. In 2005, he worked on the design of a common interface to translate mass spectrometry raw data (MALDI-TOF and LC) into mzData. In March 2006, he visited COSBI, where he dynamically collaborated in the design and implementation of Cyto-Sim, a stochastic simulator of biochemical processes. Moreover, he worked on the definition of a common interface for unmarshalling SBML models into the Cyto-Sim syntax and vice-versa. In summer
2006, Tommaso visited Microsoft Research Cambridge where he investigated the possibility of parallelizing and distributing simulation algorithms. In 2007, he joined the Bioinformatics Italian Society (B.IT.S.). Tommaso joined COSBI in January 2008 where he dealt with parallel stochastic simulation of biological systems, biological data storing and handling, design of high performance software solutions for systems biology. Since October 2010 till July 2011, Tommaso worked in the Laboratory of Translational Genomics at CIBIO where he was involved in the job of structuring AURA: the Atlas of UTR Regulatory Activity. Since July 2011, Tommaso
holds the position of researcher at Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza (FG) and CSS-Mendel (Rome), Italy, where he leads the Bioinformatics unit.
