Marina Bosi is a Consulting Professor at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Originally a flutist and flute teacher, she is known for her work on digital audio coding formats.
Marina Bosi was born near Milan and raised in Florence. She studied the flute with Severino Gazzelloni, and earned a diploma in the flute at the Conservatory of Music in Florence. She then taught flute at the Conservatory of Music in Venice. She later went back to school at the University of Florence where she graduated with a doctorate in physics. Her dissertation (developed and implemented through research at IRCAM in Paris) was “Design of a High-Speed Computer System for the Processing of Musical Sound".
She served as chief technology officer at MPEG LA and as a vice president at Digital Theater Systems (DTS). At Dolby Laboratories she helped to develop the AC-2, AC-3, and MPEG-2 Advanced Audio Coding technologies. She has also worked on devising standards for audio and video technology and digital content.
Bosi came to the United States to be a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). In the early 1990s, she developed Stanford's first course in digital audio coding, which eventually led to the publication of a textbook in the area. She is a founding member of the Digital Media Project and serves on its board of directors.
