Katelyn C. Morrison

DIG Lab @ Carnegie Mellon University.

I am a third year Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute where I am fortunate to be advised by Adam Perer. My research focuses on improving human-AI collaboration (👩🏻‍💼 + 🤖) by investigating reliance on AI, its impact in the workplace, and the impact of eXplainable AI (XAI). My recent research has focused on language models explaining image classifications of bird species. I am also interested in exploring interactions with Generative AI and exploring the transparency of GenAI. My research has been funded by the NIH and the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.

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, 2022, and 2023 Computational Sustainability Workshop.
