Einstein Questionnaire

Thomas Südhof


Please close your eyes for a moment and think about your research project. What do you see at first?
First I would think of music.

What do you do first thing in the morning when you arrive at your workplace, and why?
It depends on the day of the week. On wednesdays, and as I see today is a wednesday, I have a day off.

Please name three things that you spontaneously connect to Albert Einstein!

1. Relativity theory
2. Jewish Germanness
3. Genius

With whom would you like to exchange your workplace for one day, and what would you do then?
With a conductor of an orchestra, but an orchestra that manages to perform without a conductor.
