Katti Awarded Miller Presidential Fellowship

PhD candidate Radhika Katti has recently been awarded a Ruth Furman Miller and David H. Miller Presidential Fellowship in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering from the College of Engineering and the University.

Katti graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019 with degrees in Systems Engineering and Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science. Currently she is working with professors Sean Qian, Costa Samaras, and Scott Matthews where she is integrating autonomous vehicles into daily life from a traffic systems perspective. Katti is seeking to understand how human and a robot can optimally share control of one vehicle together and how to use autonomous vehicles to control mixed traffic flow.

“I am incredibly thankful to have received the Miller Presidential Fellowship," says Katti. "It is an honor to be on a path towards receiving a PhD in Civil Engineering from CMU alone; this fellowship only elevates that honor further.”

This award was made possible through a generous gift in 2016 from the estate of Ruth Furman Miller.
