Biagio Cosenza

Dr. Biagio Cosenza is Assistant Professor (program AIM: Attraction and International Mobility) at the Department of Computer Science, University of Salerno

He was a Senior Researcher at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany.

His research interests include high-performance computing, parallel algorithms, GPUs, compiler and software optimizations based on novel machine learning methodology.

He contributed to the development of the OpenCL support in the Insieme compiler and the libWater distributed runtime system, and is currently working on compiler optimizations for HPC and embedded systems. He has a long research track of scientific collaborations with scientists and experts from different research areas, including astrophysics, chemistry, engineering, machine learning, computer graphics and visualization.


Dr. Biagio Cosenza, born 1982 in Calabria, studied Computer Science at the University of Salerno, Italy where he holds a Master (“con lode”) in 2007. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Salerno, Italy in 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Vittorio Scarano with a thesis on Efficient Distributed Load Balancing for Parallel Algorithms.

During his studies, he has been the recipient of a DAAD scholarship at Visualization Research Center at Universität Stuttgart, under the supervision of Prof. Carsten Dachsbacher, and two HPC Translational Grants (HPC-Europa2 and HPC-Europa++) hosted by the HLRS Supercomputing Center in Stuttgart. He also got an ISCRA grant at CINECA Supercomputing in Bologna, Italy.

From Feb 2011 to Feb 2015, he has been Postdoctoral Researcher in the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. He led the OpenCL team within the Insieme Compiler Framework, an ambitious and successful research project led by Prof. Thomas Fahringer, aiming at investigating compilers optimizations targeting modern heterogeneous and massively parallel architectures (e.g., GPUs). Further research work focused on supercomputing and programming models for HPC.

At Innsbruck, he has also supported research within the FWF DK-plus, a multidisciplinary research platform on which he collaborated with chemists, astrophysics and engineers, resulting in several interdisciplinary publications.
