Rosa Sicilia was born in Cosenza, Italy, in 1993. She graduated with honours in Biomedical Engineering at Università Campus Bio-Medico (UCBM), Rome, in 2016. In 2020 she finished her Ph.D. studies in Biomedical Engineering (Computer Science area) in the same University with a thesis on “Micro-level Rumour Detection on Twitter”. After one year as a Post Doc researcher, Rosa is currently Assistant professor (RTDA) at UCBM, a position co-funded by Regione Lazio to work on the project “We-ease-it: A smart and intelligent outpatient clinic for Hospital 4.0”. Her main research interests are in the machine learning and multimodal data mining fields. In detail she works on radiomics and radiopathomics, Hospital 4.0, eXplainable AI, automatic detection of rumours in social networks and on multivariate time series analysis. Since the start of her research path, Rosa had the opportunity to participate in international conferences, actively collaborate with other researchers in research projects and article publication on the topics of her work. Rosa has been invited as lecturer to several international conferences, the most recent in 2020, “Exploring Media Ecosystems Conference” at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA, with a lecture about “mLevel Rumor Detection on Twitter: Two examples in the health domain”. She also participated as speaker in different international scientific conferences: in 2021 she won the Best Paper Award during the 34th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems. In 2022 Rosa participated as Programme Committee Chair in the IEEE 35th International Symposium on Computer Based Medical Systems (CBMS) and she will be General Chair in the 2023 CBMS edition, that will be organized in L’Aquila, Italy.
