Katelyn C. Morrison

DIG Lab @ Carnegie Mellon University.

I am a second year Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute where I am fortunate to be advised by Adam Perer. I am interested in human-AI collaboration (👩🏻‍💼 + 🤖), eXplainable AI (XAI), and computer vision. At the intersection of these interests, I am exploring how we can improve human-AI collaboration through human-centered approaches in high-stakes domains such as building damage assessment 🛰, wildlife conservation 🦜, and diagnosing diseases from medical imaging 🩻. I am also interested in exploring human-centered approaches to improve low-stakes human-AI collaboration. I am a co-organizer for the 2023 Computational Sustainability Doctoral Consortium.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in computer science and a certificate in sustainability. In undergrad, I focused on the application and limitations of computer vision models as well as the distribution of smart mobility resources within cities. I also served as a co-organizer for the 2020 and 2022 Computational Sustainability Doctoral Consortium.
