Prof. Iryna Gurevych becomes a member of the Leopoldina


High honor for ATHENE researcher

Prof. Iryna Gurevych from TU Darmstadt has been appointed to the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. This gives her one of the highest scientific honors that a German institution can bestow, as the world's oldest permanently existing academy of natural sciences unites only researchers with outstanding scientific achievements under its roof. With around 1.600 members, it provides independent, science-based political advice on future social issues and represents German science abroad. New members undergo a strict, multi-stage selection process.

Prof. Iryna Gurevych heads the "Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing" research area at the Department of Computer Science at TU Darmstadt. In 2021, she was the first woman to be awarded a LOEWE top professorship. She contributes her research in automatic language processing and artificial intelligence to the ATHENE research areas Automatic Vulnerability Scanning and Verification (AVSV), Security and Privacy in Artificial Intelligence (SENPAI) and Secure Digital Transformation in Health Care (SeDiTraH), among others.
