The topic of his dissertation was related to folding flying robots used to transport small packages directly to human hands in urban areas. After his Ph.D., he focused on his start-up Dronistics (https://dronistics.ch).
In June 2015, he was the laureate of the Polish edition of the “Innovators Under 35” competition organized by MIT Technology Review (https://www.innovatorsunder35.com/the-list/przemyslaw-mariusz-kornatowski/).
From 2012 to 2015, he was working at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, as an engineer designing and building drones for the project “GimBall: A resilient flying robot for semiautonomous operation in cluttered environments.” (http://lis.epfl.ch/gimball).
In February 2015, the robot “GimBall” won a million dollars in the competition “The UAE Drones for Good” (https://www.dronesforgood.ae/en) for the best civilian drone saving lives.”
