Up and Coming

The Up And Coming list recognizes the members of the TransTech community who on a leading edge and getting close to making a contribution that could land them on the main list. They might also already be strong contributors in other fields who are beginning to apply their expertise towards advancing TransTech, but are in the early stages; distinguished graduate students who are active in the space; or simply very promising projects that we hope will be released one day to the public! From up and coming researchers to communities to commercial ventures, these are honorees to watch!
