2009-20013: Higher Scientific Officer, Institute of Cancer Research, London. Analysis of single cell images from the Opera automated, high-throughput microscope: using Image Processing and Machine Learning techniques to correlate cell line, cell morphology, NFkb expression in nucleus and cytoplasm, cell invasiveness under different conditions (e.g. Hypoxia) or treatments (e.g. TGFa). Integration with data from targeted knockdowns and gene expression arrays for correlating genotype with phenotype. Investigation of ergodicity and intracellular noise in the ensemble. Modelling using random boolean networks and sampling the attractors using Monte Carlo methods. I have developed a Feature Selection pipeline using a novel algorithm combining Support Vector Machines and Genetic Algorithms. The pipeline is written in C and Java and is especially suited for SGI Altix UV supercomputer system and its shared memory features. I have developed methods for analysing MALDI (Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization) images within a machine learning framework, identification of tissue type, tumour, treatment condition. Fusion with microscope images. I have integrated Mass Spectrometry data (SILAC enrichment, phosphorylation) with public databases (e.g. STRING, GO) in order to build protein-protein interaction networks. This procedure was used in the investigation of protein expression fold change in cells under Hypoxia and Normoxia conditions. I have also developed a novel way of identifying proteins acting as probable connections between protein interaction networks, which the MS failed to detect.

Monica was born in Naples, in the South of Italy. In 2010 she acquired her Master Degree in Cultural Heritage and during her studies she focused on Greek and roman archaeology and the research on building materials of historical, artistic and archaeological monuments in Campania and Pompei. She attended in 2011, a postgraduate Master’s program in “Geotechnologies for Archaeology” at the center of Geo-Technologies (CGT) of Siena University and she focused her research activities on photogrammetry and laser scanning survey integrating her results on GIS platforms. She continued her research career at the Italian Virtual Heritage School at CNR-ITABC which was a good opportunity to increase her knowledge about virtual archaeology and open source software.
In order to increase her background in the field of 3D survey applied to restoration and conservation, she attended in 2012/13 the postgraduate Master’s program in “Instruments and methods for conservation and valorization of cultural heritage” at Urbino University. During that period she had the opportunity to gain experience in the field of documentation and surveying of Cultural Heritage.
She won in 2012 the Alexander Goets Instrument Support Program (AGISP) by ASD (Colorado) with a project by the title “Spectral response of architectural surface as support to analyses materials and degradation” and she used a LabSpec 4 (LS4) carrying out research on building materials of the Portico of St. Francis Church in Urbino and Pompei to characterize spectral response of architectural surfaces that can be linked to different type of superficial degradation.
As of 2013 she worked by different leading institutions in the area of Cultural Heritage documentation in several places in Europe and Algeria.
Apart from work she loves street photography, travelling, enjoying her family and friends, walking with her dog, cooking, reading books and swimming.
