Emma Katz, EIT

I view transportation as a way in which I can make a positive impact. I believe accessible transportation to all should be a basic human right as it establishes an even starting line for everyone and I can use my career to provide this opportunity to more people.


Emma is a Design Engineer who recently graduated from Northeastern University. She’s passionate about accessible and environmentally friendly transportation. She’s had two years of experience at transportation firms in the Boston area, working on traffic impact studies, road design, and transportation analysis. Her final semester at Northeastern was spent on a project that aimed to provide safe routes to school in a Boston neighborhood. Emma and her teammates completed a report and multiple community presentations that discussed research of the study area, design recommendations and traffic analyses in detail. Emma hopes to use her experiences thus far to contribute to Alta as well as build on her skills to become a well-rounded and innovative engineer.
