Meet the Researchers: ESR4 Chidera Winfred AMAZU

Chidera is a double degree MSc. graduate of Production Engineering and Management from OWL University of Applied Science in Lemgo, Germany, and the University of Trieste, Italy. She also has an academic background in Mechanical Engineering (Industrial and Production Major) from her first degree in Nigeria.  

Professionally, she has worked and garnered experience in Equipment Maintenance, Network surveillance, and Product development across several companies within Nigeria and Germany. Her passion for research and her desire to contribute to industrial development and explore topics within the context of industry 4.0 has been a driver towards her current engagement in the CISC (Collaborative Intelligence for Safety-Critical Systems) project.  

CISC progress
As an AI ESR (Early-stage researcher) in the project, Chidera would be working on modelling process safety data for Human-in loop configuration in process control. Her research aims at optimizing tolls for decisions support in the human-machine interface configurations and increasing situational awareness for safety-critical systems in the process industry and critical infrastructure (networks).

She looks forward to an interesting phase and to the next few years as a human-centred AI researcher.

About her participation in the Marie Curie Alumni Association 2023 Conference she says:

I had the opportunity to participate in the just concluded Marie Curie alumni Associations’ (MCAA) annual conference on “Challenges in science diplomacy and sustainable development” in Cordoba, Spain. During these three days, I participated in training on science communication, where I also got to work on my first science communication blog. An opportunity to network these days was also an aspect I enjoyed, including the different enlightening sessions I attended.
Very excited as well to have also been awarded the Best Poster Presentation at the conference. My poster was an avenue to communicate part of my research and was titled “Towards a risk-based decision framework for decision support in HITL process control rooms“. You can learn more about my and other projects in our network on the collaborative intelligence for safety-critical systems (CISC) website.
Thanks to the Marie Curie Alumni Association for the platform!
