Visiting PhD Researcher, Catherine Sai

Welcome to Catherine Sai (Kate) who has joined CIRES for two months as a visiting PhD researcher from the Technical University of Munich. Kate has a Masters in Industrial Engineering from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), and four years industry experience, including working as a Cognitive Computing Consultant and Data Scientist.

She is focused on data driven business process improvement, and her PhD topic focuses on the automatic identification, extraction, and in-depth comparison of process requirements from complex texts with a business actual process. During her time at CIRES, Kate will work with Associate Professor Gianluca Demartini and Professor Shazia Sadiq on a project involving the automated identification or relevant (textual) requirements based on a business process.

Kate’s excited to join forces across research institutions and countries, and is looking forward to collaborating with CIRES partners and researchers across the Centre.

Welcome Kate!
