Kathryn Wantlin
Ph.D., Princeton University

I am a 1st year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Princeton University, advised by Prof. Ryan Adams. I also collaborate with Prof. Naomi Leonard at Princeton and Prof. Pranav Rajpurkar at Harvard Medical School. Previously, I received my M.S.E. from Princeton University and my A.B from Harvard University, where my thesis was advised by Prof. David Parkes.

My research interests center around the design of algorithms for machine learning and multi-agent systems that are flexible, robust, and generalizable, with applications in engineering, natural sciences, and the arts. Recently, I’ve been thinking about decentralized morphogenesis and the joint evolution of control and morphology in nature and reproducing these properties in engineered systems.
