Dr.-Ing. Tanja Katharina Kaiser

After studying computer science at DHBW Stuttgart and TU Berlin, Dr.-Ing. Kaiser completed her PhD on „The Predicting Swarm: Evolving Collective Behaviors for Robot Swarms by Minimizing Surprise“ at the University of Lübeck. Most recently, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the Cyber-Physical Systems group and an associate member of the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behavior at the University of Konstanz. On April 1st 2023, Dr.-Ing. Kaiser started her work at ScaDS.AI Dresden/Leipzig as the first Ada Lovelace Distinguished Research Fellow. Her research interests include:

  • swarm robotics and collective systems
  • automatic synthesis of swarm robot controllers using evolutionary algorithms and task-independent rewards
  • application of collective robot behavior in the real world
