Tautvydas Juskauskas (MPA ’15) took home second place at the Falling Walls Lab in Ljubljana, Slovenia for his work on estimating crowd sizes using drones. Falling Walls Labs are held in numerous cities around the world and provide young academics and professionals with opportunities to present their innovative ideas, research, and initiatives.
Juskauskas was one of 13 participants presenting in front of five judges from business and academia. “I was very excited that our work at the SPP Drone Lab received this recognition,” Juskauskas commented. “We’re trying to use drones for good, and the judges commended our innovative use of this technology.”
The winning project in Ljubljana this year went to a researcher working on data storage via plant DNA. “I had a great time learning about very exciting projects at the Falling Walls Lab,” Juskauskas said. “I would love to be a part of a future lab in Budapest.”
