Edoardo De Tommasi was born in Ambilly, France, in 1978. He received the Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in Physics from the University of Naples Federico II, Napoli, Italy, in 2002.

From December 2002 until March 2003 he worked for the National Institute for Biosystems and Biostructures, Rome, Italy, in collaboration with the Department of Experimental Medicine of the Second University of Naples, Naples, Italy, developing a glucose biosensor based on the fluorescence properties of the enzyme glucose-oxidase.

From April 2003 until September 2003 he studied, with the financial support of Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome, Italy, and exploiting the facilities of the Physics Department of the University of Genoa, Italy, the metabolism of multi-cell osteosarcoma spheroids  by means  of confocal and two-photon fluorescence microscopy.

From November 2003 until November 2006 he worked at the Environmental Science Department of the Second University of Naples, Caserta, Italy, where he received the PhD degree in "Novel Physical Methodologies for Ecological Research" . His activities where focused on the development  of a portable ammonia analyzer based on high-sensitivity diode-laser absorption spectroscopy and on the elaboration of  efficient numerical models for signal analysis in wavelength-modulation spectroscopy.

From December 2006 until December 2009 he has been employed at IMM, Department of Naples, as post-doc fellow. His activities comprised the development and characterization of optical biosensors based on porous silicon technology; the ellispometric and optical characterization of  bio/non-bio interfaces; the study of the optical and sensing  properties of diatom silica frustules.

In 2010 he worked as post-doc fellow at the National Institute for Optics, Unit of Naples, where he has dedicated himself to the applications of non-linear optics (mainly difference frequency generation and parametric optical oscillation) to high-resolution laser spectroscopy.

Since February 2011 Edoardo De Tommasi has been appointed Scientific Head of the CNR-IMM Unit of the FIRB Project “Future in Research” (National Project for Fundamental Research for Young Scientists) aimed at the study of photonic and micromechanical properties of marine diatoms.
