Dr. Marina Marie-Claire Höhne (née Vidovic)

Marina M.-C. Höhne (née Vidovic) received the Master’s degree in Technomathematics in 2012. From 2012 to 2014 she worked as a researcher at Ottobock in Vienna, Austria, on time series data and domain adaptation for controlling prosthetic devices. In 2014 she started her PhD on explainable AI and received the Dr. rer. nat. degree with summa cum laude from TU Berlin in 2017. Afterwards from 2017 to 2018 she took one year maternity leave, and continued working at the machine learning chair at TU Berlin as a postdoctoral researcher in 2018. In this time, from 2018-2020, she has been lecturing seminars and lectures in machine learning, supervised bachelor, master and PhD students and continued her studies in explainable AI and domain adaptation. In 2020 she started her own junior research group – Understandable Machine Intelligence (UMI) lab – in the area of explainable AI at TU Berlin, funded by the german federal ministry of education and research.
Furthermore, she received the best paper prize at the workshop for explainable AI for complex systems in 2016. She is a reviewer for NeurIPS and ICML and she serves as a reviewer for the german federal ministry of education and research (BMBF). In 2021 she joined the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) as a junior fellow.
