Marta Lovino

Marta Lovino is currently Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the AImage lab group, where she joined in 2022. She received the Ph.D. in Computer and Control Engineering cum laude offered by Politecnico di Torino in 2021, after the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the same University in 2015 and 2017. During her Ph.D., she worked on software tools and pipelines to analyze genomics and proteomics data. In 2020, she was a visiting researcher for six months at the Institute Curie Center in Paris, in the Signaling in development and brain tumors lab.
Her primary research interests are cancer prognosis prediction, gene expression analysis, miRNA target prediction, gene regulatory networks, gene fusions, and multi-omics data integration.
