Anthony Barrs is an MBA candidate in the Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley. His area of focus is design thinking, a process that helps reframe business challenges through the perspective of users. Prior to returning to school, Barrs worked in innovation, corporate strategy and management consulting.
Barrs and Baiyu Chen, a researcher at the university, developed the Hyperlane concept that allows autonomous vehicles to move at high speeds across existing infrastructure networks while distributing demand using a dynamic pricing structure. The Hyperlane concept was awarded first prize in the Infrastructure Vision 2050 Challenge at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in 2017.
