Roudy Hanna on the Falling Walls Lab Rhineland 2021:
“I am very honored to have taken the 2nd Place and the Audience Favorite award at this year’s Falling Walls Foundation Lab Rhineland in The University of Bonn. It has been a fun challenge preparing this 3 min pitch-talk on an extremely difficult research subject for a broad audience. I very much enjoyed meeting great people from various backgrounds with very creative ideas that will positively impact humanity. Finally, I would like to wish Christoph Lotz (second from right) all the best for the final round in Berlin.”
