Marina Ljubenovic is a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Vision at the Center for Cultural Heritage Technology (CCHT@CaFoscari) of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) since 2020. She is working on the development of novel model-based and machine learning-based image restoration and reconstruction techniques for terahertz, hyperspectral, and document images. In 2019, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Vision Lab, University of Antwerp, Belgium on developing 3D image reconstruction methods for contact-free and non-destructive technique - terahertz imaging. Marina received her PhD degree in Electrotechnics and Computer Sciences from the Institute Superior Tecnico, University of Lisbon. During her PhD, she was part of the Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (MacSeNet) and she was employed as an Early Stage Researcher at the Institute for Telecommunications in Lisbon. The focus of her PhD work was on image restoration, namely, denoising, super-resolution, and blind image deblurring. She obtained bachelor and master degrees in Telecommunications and Signal Processing at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia. In her research career, she collaborated with various international teams and she was a visiting researcher at two research labs: Noiseless Imaging, the Tampere University of Technology in Finland and Computer Technology Institute in Athens, Greece.
