Dr.-Ing. Tanja Katharina Kaiser
Postdoctoral researcher. University of Konstanz, Germany.
I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the University Konstanz (Germany) in the Cyber-Physical Systems Group headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heiko Hamann and an affiliate member of the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour. My research interests are swarm robotics, collective systems, evolutionary robotics, and ROS 2 for robot swarms.
In 2022, I defended my doctoral dissertation titled “The Predicting Swarm: Evolving Collective Behaviors for Robot Swarms by Minimizing Surprise” at the University of Lübeck (Germany). I was member of the Service Robotics Group headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heiko Hamann as part of the Institute of Computer Engineering.
Furthermore, I hold a M. Sc. degree in Computer Science of the Technical University Berlin (Germany) and a B. Sc. in Applied Computer Science of the Cooperative State University Baden-Wuerttemberg Stuttgart (Germany).
