Katz served as a professor of public policy at Harvard for 10 years, where she was awarded the Manuel Carballo Teaching Prize by the students. Her research on teams, social networks, and reward systems has been published in such journals as Harvard Business Review, Organization Science, Academy of Management Executive, Small Group Research, Political Communication, and Social Justice Research.
