Personal profile

Research interests

Cat Kutay is descended from seafarers of Aboriginal and Celtic origin. Cat is a Lecturer in the Faculty of Science and Technology at Charles Darwin University. She works with Aboriginal communities for both-way learning in engineering and IT projects, including language learning and story sharing as a way for Aboriginal culture and knowledge to be acknowledged and integrated into Australian engineering approaches.

She is a Computer and Electrical Engineer. She manages projects developing software for online learning, such as through simulations of  renewable energy systems to train in demand management and web services for Indigenous Knowledge sharing. In particular she develops online and blended learning resources using narrative techniques, simulations, games and multimedia to provide more immersive techniques and practice-based learning. 

Dr Kutay has researched agent support for online group learning based on student interaction patterns to develop rule based system suitable for low data modelling, and works with machine learning models for language processing

Cat Kutay's research is in the areas of: Indigenous knowledge management; Machine Learning for Language Analysis; Human Computer Interaction for presenting information for exploration and pattern matching; and Artificial agents for emergent narrative in games.
