Amir Wilson

TMA Coordinator & Spatial Data Analyst

Amir Wilson joined A Better City in March 2024 as the TMA Coordinator and Spatial Data Analyst. In his role, Amir works with the TDM Unit to foster workforce-wide commuter mode-shift by contributing to ongoing TDM research and data analysis, supporting TMA operations and administration, and providing specialized commuter programming to member organizations served by A Better City TMA and Allston Brighton TMA.

Prior to starting in his full-time role, Amir completed a 3-month internship with A Better City through the MassCEC Clean Energy Internship Program in Fall 2023. As an intern, he worked with the Energy & Environment Unit on an ArcGIS project mapping and comparing the impacts of summer extreme heat, urban tree canopy, air quality in proximity to roadways, and social vulnerability across Boston neighborhoods. The goal of this mapping is to help the City and its partners prioritize Boston’s most vulnerable communities when rolling out the first wave of heat resilience investments.

Amir graduated from Boston University in 2023 as the recipient of the CAS College Prize for Excellence in Earth and Environment and one of the recipients of the Student Sustainability Leadership Award.
