Research Interests

His research focuses on reproducibility of eScience experiments and machine-actionable data management plans. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to: experiment context modelling, verification and validation, data repository architectures and workflows, digital curation and preservation.


Tomasz Miksa is working as a researcher at SBA Research since October 2012. He received in 2011 his MSc in systems and computer networks from the Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland. In 2016 he received his PhD in computer science from the TU Wien for his work on verification and validation of scientific workflow re-executions. He was involved in preservation of business processes in the EU-funded FP7 project TIMBUS. Furthermore, he took part in the FP7 4C Project which aimed to clarify the costs of curation of digital assets. Currently, he is a chair of the DMP Common Standards working group at the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and a co-founder of RDA Austria.
