Dr. Amy Epps Martin, professor in the Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Texas A&M University and a researcher at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, has been named one of 20 Women of Asphalt to Watch in 2020.

The list includes women in leadership positions, influencers, thought leaders and newcomers to the asphalt industry. All have demonstrated success in the asphalt industry, affected positive change, served as a mentor and given back to their community.

“I am honored and humbled to be recognized by my peers as one of the 20 Women of Asphalt to Watch in 2020. I strive to continue to be a role model of integrity, excellence and balance in all that I do,” Epps Martin said.

During her more than 22 years in civil engineering, Epps Martin said among the most significant achievements in her career is the positive impact she has had on approximately 1,800 students, including mentoring 42 graduate students.

She is also an accomplished researcher. Her work is balanced between fundamental theory and practical science, and led to the development of performance-based specifications for asphalt pavement materials, national guidelines for the design and construction of specialty asphalt mixtures, as well as the development of sustainable and durable asphalt materials.

In 2019, she was elected a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and to the board of directors as director-at-large for the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists.

Women of Asphalt is a national coalition supporting women in all aspects of the asphalt industry through mentoring, education and advocacy, and by encouraging women to seek careers in the asphalt industry.
