Short introduction

What are you proud of?
Space's reputation for 'thought leadership' is, I think, well established. Our image in studies and research is quite strong and that makes me rather proud of the achievement.
In your free time, what do you like to do most?
Picking out a new song and playing it on my acoustic guitar. One day, I switch to electric.
Did you know that I…
... I first studied literary studies ? That is often surprising compared to my very numerical side.
Where would you go in a time machine and with whom/why?
Meeting John Lennon and hearing him compose Day Tripper, Jealous Guy or Imagine, or crossing paths with David Bowie, even though I know John was not necessarily an easy guy.

Bernard's Recommendations

What is your favourite movie?
I'll give a feelgood title: "Yesterday" by Danny Boyle
What book would you recommend?
The work of Amin Maalouf, a French-speaking author of Lebanese origin.
Can you recommend a good restaurant?
Take yourself to Louvain-la-Neuve: my wife and I like going there.
Do you have another cool tip for us?
Walking at least ½ hour a day is good for everything. Unfortunately I don't always do it.

Last but not least

What is your favourite quote?
" Tout flatteur vit aux dépens de celui qui l’écoute ", La Fontaine. (" Iedere vleier leeft ten koste van hem die naar hem luistert ", La Fontaine.)
