Our Interviews

Almost a year ago we performed two interviews after the webinar "Connected against Covid-19 - How networks spread and combat pandemics" organized by the Dutch Academy of Sciences. In the first interview with professor Piet Van Mieghem from the Tu Delft we discussed a very important duality in network science. Namely, the duality between function and structure of a network. In the second interview with professor José van Dijck from Utrecht University we discussed the role that social media played during the pandemic. She described social media as a "double-edges cutting sword." Do you wonder why? Have a look at the interview!

A couple of months later Ana-Maria Olteniceanu, Maurik Engelbert van Bevervoorde, Maurits Flos, Riccardo Torlaini from the Tu Eindhoven interviewed professor Hans Heesterbeek from Utrecht University about how to plan for a pandemic. 

Last but definitely not least, Clara Stegehuis and Francesca Arici interviewed Birgit Solie from the VU about her research. The interview was originally published in Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde (In Dutch). On the Network Pages you can find a translation in English. 

Next week Part 3 of our summer reads: articles with a mathematical twist!
