Katie Fitch is a fifth year PhD candidate working with Naomi Leonard. Her research is on the leader selection problem in multi-agent systems, studying how to identify influential sets of nodes in a network based on the structure of the underlying graph laplacian. She will complete her doctorate degree in summer 2016 and will be seeking post employment opportunities where she can pursue her broader interests of dynamics & control of networked systems, graph theory and machine learning. Prior to her studies at Princeton, Katie received her B.S. from Syracuse University in 2011. She was the recipient of a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and is an active member of the Women in STEM Leadership Council and the Princeton MAE Graduate Student Committee. Outside of work, Katie enjoys photography, running, and climbing.
