About me

Hello! I am Miriam Rateike (she/her). I am a PhD student at the Max-Planck-Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, and at the Graduate School of Computer Science of the University of Saarland (UdS). I am advised by Prof. Isabel Valera. In my research I focus on creating algorithms for fair decision making under realistic assumptions. I am particularly interested in the intersection of causality and fairness. In my free time I support TReND in Africa and am an active member of Femtec Alumnae e.V..
