Remco van der Hofstad is a mathematician who bridges the gap between basic and applied research. For example, thanks to Van der Hofstad, chemists now have a better understanding of how polymer chains are formed and physicists can more easily calculate percolation processes, in which liquids seep through a filter. Van der Hofstad research is also used to model social networks like Facebook.
