Dr. Fitzpatrick, a graph theorist, uses points (vertices) connected by lines (edges) to model relationships focusing on pursuit games and searching graphs. She works to find the most efficient search techniques for particular classes of graphs. Graph theory has many applications; for example, it could explain how a computer virus is spread.
