Too Lazy to Read the Paper: Episode 5 with Renaud Lambiotte


//

Today’s guest is Renaud Lambiotte

Renaud is an associate professor at the Mathematical Institute of Oxford University, investigating processes taking place on large networks.

In the episode, we talk about his story in science, the joy and value of exploring without a particular purpose, doing a PhD without publishing any papers, … and how reading classical texts by Boltzmann and others early on has shaped the work Renaud does even to this day.

When we get to the paper, we talk about Renaud’s recent work “Variance and covariance of distributions on graphs” (1) with co-authors Karel Devriendt and Samuel Martin-Gutierrez.
