PhD Researcher
Kate Arkhangelskaya

Kate Arkhangelskaya embarked on her Ph.D. journey in January 2024, delving into explainable AI, in-network computing, and haptic communication. With a robust background as a software engineer in diverse applications, she aims to integrate practical insights into her research pursuits. Prior to joining CETI as a researcher, she worked as a Research Assistant at the Chair of Industrial Design and Engineering, leading data analysis and machine learning for the veiio project. In 2022, she attained her Masters in Computer Science from Saarland University, exploring neural network explainability and disentanglement in her thesis. Concurrently, she contributed to research on Domain Adaptation for Question Answering at DFKI and Core Sets for Deep Learning at CISPA Helmholz Center for Cybersecurity.
