  1. Prof. Mertz is not only a prolific innovator, but also a top notch communicator of his science, and as such an A+ teacher as well. His hard work to achieve intuition not only pays off in his innovations, but equally so in the classroom where he’s able to impart that same level of intuition to his students. It’s truly a joy and pleasure to learn from Prof. Mertz (also, listening to his lectures/talks is like listening to Richard Feynman and Robert De Niro put together: educational, to the point, and entertaining; he also might be from New York like those two as well).
