Tomasz Melcer

Tomasz Melcer is a Ph.D. student at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Wroclaw University of Technology. His research focuses on issues of discrete optimization. He graduated from the Faculty of Fundamendal Problems of Technology with specialisation in algorithms and information systems.

He has a total of over 20 years of programming experience. He is especially enjoying solving unusual programming problems. Interested in the theory of programming languages, he knows and applies in practice over a dozen of languages. In his work the most prominent place takes Python, but he also often uses other tools: from general-purpose languages such as C++ or C# to domain-specific tools like XSLT, Prolog and GMPL.

Tomasz likes when his code makes other people’s jobs easier. Because of that, he is a free software enthusiast and participates in its development (including taking part in the Google Summer of Code program and projects related to the user interface).

He likes to learn and share his knowledge. He is a member of the AASOC student association, where he enjoys giving lectures and preparing workshops on programming. He applies good programming practices such as continuous integration and test-driven development to his work. He is known for his precise and clear explanations of complex ideas.

Since 2009 Tomasz has been working with the Swedish bioinformatics company MedicWave. He works there on algorithms of statistical analysis of medical data with applications in cancer diagnostics. Since 2012 he has also been working on automatic discovery of relationships in large data sets for WhiteHats, a Polish IT consulting company.
