Born in Italy, Elena Odermatt studied Environmental Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Milan. Directly after completing her studies, she worked on climate change and water management research projects at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and the University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth. She then started out her career as a transportation planning expert – first as a research assistant at the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems of ETH Zurich and later as a project engineer at different Swiss engineering firms. Elena Odermatt joined Basler & Hofmann in 2014 as a consultant for transportation models and traffic flow simulations. Since 2018 she has brought her wealth of experience and expertise to the Transport Planning department as a project manager specialising in traffic flow simulations and pedestrian flow studies.
What fascinates you about your work?
The versatility. Sometimes a project is more of a one-woman show, sometimes it takes two-thirds of the entire company from every team and every department in order to find the optimal solution.
What is different about working at Basler & Hofmann?
I really appreciate that Basler & Hofmann is a family-owned company that values both tradition and innovation. In terms of my day-to-day work, I love the team spirit and the open, easy-going relationships between employees and superiors.
