Labs Talk: The Future of Transportation with Ana Eloisa Garcia
Hyperloop is an ultra-high-speed ground transportation system for passenger and cargo proposed as a concept by Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, in a white paper back in 2013. And just one more exciting piece of information: the TUM has a long track record when it comes to winning the hyperloop competitions: Over the last half decade the team has won all editions of the event and gathered extensive experience in these fields.
Ana is Mexican nanotechnology engineer – and according to her biography, she has a passion for technology transfer and tacos J She participated in many entrepreneurship contests already, like some from Harvard and MIT in the United States. She also participated in international programs that aim to improve the relationships between youth from all around the world. Right now, she is pursuing a master’s in management at the TUM. Parallel to this, for the past two years Ana has supported the school’s Hyperloop team, including attending the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition in 2019.
Since last September, she has led the Business Case Subteam, and together with other students, she is developing feasibility studies to analyze the potential of the implementation of a Hyperloop system in Germany, and hopefully in the near future, throughout Europe.
