Olivera Kotevska

Research Scientist


Dr. Dipl-Ing. Olivera Kotevska (Senior Member, IEEE) is a research scientist in Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Tennessee, USA. She received her Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Grenoble Alpes, France. Before joining ORNL, she worked as an international guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Washington, DC performing machine learning for smart city challenges as well as researching the security and privacy aspects of Home Internet of Things devices.
Olivera’s doctoral research focused on using machine learning / artificial intelligence approach to streaming systems to identify causal relations between events, sensors, and event prediction. Additionally, she is interested in differential privacy algorithms for edge computing systems and algorithms for increasing trust in AI-based systems. At ORNL, she works on using ML algorithms in event-based distributed/networked systems applied to effective sensing and control of complex systems such as electric grids, human mobility and biomedical. She is the author and co-author of over 20 papers in premier journals and conferences.
