### Understanding Networks: The power to predict pandemics, information spread, and quantum gravity

Dr. Krioukov’s lab recently published two papers in the field of network science. These papers show that (1) the geometry of networks can be elucidated by understanding the network’s latent properties and (2) For networks living in latent space, finding their geometry is possible using a previously known standard called Ollivier Curvature.
