Short Bio

Dr. Patrizio Dazzi is Researcher at the Information Science and Technologies Institute “A. Faedo” (ISTI) the largest Italian research institute on ICT, and part of the Italian National Research Council (CNR). Patrizio Dazzi is also member of the High Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCLab). He has been with HPCLab since 2005, initially as research fellow, then as researcher.

Patrizio Dazzi is an alumnus of University of Pisa, where in 2003 he got a B.Sc. in Computer Science and, in 2004, a M.Sc. in Computer Technologies, with full marks (110/110). From March 2005 to July 2008 he has been a Ph.D. student of the Computer Science and Engineering program at IMT, the Lucca Insitute for Advanced Studies.  In 2008 he defended his Ph.D. thesis titled “Tools and Models for High-Level Parallel and Grid Programming” supervised by Prof. Marco Danelutto achieving his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering.

The research focus of Patrizio Dazzi is mainly on highly distributed systems, cloud and edge computing


I have been teaching at University in different ways and with different roles. I have been a teaching assistant for some years, both in introductory courses for programming as well as in advanced courses for parallel and distributed computing. In 2017 I have been teaching Introduction to Databases to bachelor students. In 2019 I have been lecturer in Distributed Data Analysis and Mining.

Supervision and Advice activities

Across the years I have been serving as supervisor and advisor for many theses, both bachelor and master ones. Most of them have been focused in the field of distributed processing with a focus on self-optimizing highly distributed solutions. I also served as a supervisor for the Ph.D. of Alessandro Lulli.

Activities in Research Projects

Since 2005 I have been working in National and European Research Projects with different roles and involvements. During the sixth EU framework programme I have been mainly working in projects dealing with Grid Computing (GRID.it FIRB Project, EU GridCOMP Project, EU XtreemOS Project).

During the Seventh EU framework programme I have been involved in two main projects: EU CONTRAIL Project and EU NESSOS Project.

In the H2020 framework programme I served as Scientific Coordinator for the EU-South Korea H2020 BASMATI Project (2016-2018); I am currently serving as Project Coordinator for the EU ACCORDION Project and as Innovation Coordinator for the EU TEACHING Project.
