RE4ES Workshop Organization

Organizing Committee

Verena Klös

Verena Klös

TU Berlin, Germany

Verena Klös studied computer science and completed her master’s degree and phd thesis at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. She is a postdoctoral associate at Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. In her phd thesis, she developed a framework for safe, intelligent and explainable self-adaptive systems. Currently, her research focuses on explainability of autonomous and cyber-physical systems.

Maike Schwammberger

Maike Schwammberger

Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany

Maike Schwammberger finished her doctoral studies at Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg within the field of modeling and verification of autonomous traffic maneuvers. Currently, she is affiliated with the chair of Hybrid Systems at University of Oldenburg. Her research focuses on the analysis of various aspects of autonomous traffic maneuvers. One of her research topics is to make autonomous systems more understandable through self-explainability and to, e.g., synthesize explanation strategies.

Mersedeh Sadeghi

Mersedeh Sadeghi

University of Cologne, Germany

Mersedeh Sadeghi received a master’s degree and a PhD in Computer Science from the Politecnico di Milano. Currently, she is pursuing her postdoctoral research at the University of Cologne. Her research activity particularly is focused on various aspects of software engineering of distributed systems such as transportation domain, smart cities and pervasive computing. Her main research interest includes software engineering and the explainability of context-aware pervasive systems.
