Petter Holme: Temporal networks help to understand the spreading dynamics

'My research concerns networks in general – power grids, social and ecological networks, bus transportation, and many others. I approach my research using mathematical theories and frameworks, as well as computer modelling. Concrete examples of these networks studied include Internet dating, the Frozen movie, and the Covid epidemic.'
