In a Nutshell, ep. 3: Riddles of Randomness with Klaas Landsman
In the Vox podcast In a Nutshell, hosts Jara Majerus and Antonia Leise take a deep-dive into the university's most interesting, strange, and exciting research. Every two weeks, they invite Radboud researchers to talk about their favourite topics – explained in bite-sized episodes. In today's episode, Jara talks with Klaas Landsman about the riddles of randomness.
In the third episode of In a Nutshell, host Jara Majerus invites the professor of Mathematical Physics and lover of randomness Klaas Landsman into the studio.
In this episode, we dive into the riddles of randomness. What is randomness? Which role does it play in the universe, and what does Einstein have to do with it? Klaas Landsman knows all the answers and explains why he is utterly excited about everything random.
Klaas Landsman is a professor of Mathematical Physics and the winner of the Spinoza Prize 2022. He has investigated randomness and chance thoroughly and does not lose his enthusiasm to share and explain his findings to the people around him.
