Professor of Acoustics, Geophysics, Innovation emeritus







  • The more complex the system, the more scientists should rely on measurements.

  • We can never achieve a big step forward if we stay within the same concept

  • ‘Logic based activities will be taken over by smart robots. In the future mankind will focus on creativity and empathy’.
