Meet Colorado State’s Communication Manager, Emily Keats

Emily Keats is the Communication Manager for the Vehicle Innovation Team (VIT) at Colorado State University, where she works to publicize the EcoCAR 2 program at the campus, local, and state level.

Emily was born and raised in Stevens Point, WI and moved to Colorado in 2009 to pursue a master’s degree in Public Communication and Technology. She has since earned this degree and is now working on her Ph.D. in the same discipline.

She joined the EcoCAR 2 project in August 2012 – and knew absolutely nothing about advanced vehicle technology (which has since changed drastically)! Being involved with this outstanding program has helped her to gain hands-on experience in public relations, marketing and communicating technical content.

Emily loves being involved in this project and looks forward to starting up the EcoCAR 3 communications team next fall!
