Noel Lau, a Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University  traveled to New York City to attend the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) TRANSform conference and receive her scholarship award.  Lau was able to personally thank the sponsors of her scholarship, network with other scholarship recipients, participate in APTA’s mentorship program as a mentee, and sit in on committee meetings.  Attending workshops on critical topics such as the effects of mobility on community health, safe and secure deployment of new systems, and the goals of research in the field, gave her a sense of the organization and inclusivity of the transportation industry, as well as unique experiences into what real-world conversations between policy and technology look like.
