Research Interest

My research interest focuses on human-centered AI. A major challenge in this area is that with an increasing complexity of AI systems, their predictions and decisions are not always fully explainable to users. How can transparency, a requirement for the responsible use of AI, nevertheless be ensured and which user needs (e.g. usability, trust, etc.) are thereby taken into account? Such questions fascinate me and are a focus of my research.
