### Joel Ouaknine

Joël Ouaknine is a Scientific Director at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems in Saarbrücken, Germany. His research interests straddle theoretical computer science and mathematics, and lie mainly in the area of dynamical systems and computation, making use of tools from number theory, Diophantine geometry, and algebraic geometry. Joël studied mathematics at McGill University, and received his PhD in Computer Science from Oxford University in 2001. He subsequently held postdoc positions at Tulane University and Carnegie Mellon University, and worked as an academic in the Computer Science Department at Oxford University from 2004 to 2016, becoming Full Professor in 2010. He received the Roger Needham Award in 2010, an ERC grant in 2015, and was elected member of Academia Europaea in 2020. He received the 2020 Arto Salomaa Prize (jointly with James Worrell), for "outstanding contributions to Theoretical Computer Science, in particular to the theory of timed automata and to the analysis of dynamical systems". He joined the Emmy Network in 2021.

### Jussi Westergren

Jussi was born in Lauritsala, Finland. He attended Atlantic College in Wales and went on to study mathematics, physics and fine art at McGill and University of Helsinki. He received his DPhil from University of Oxford. Jussi has spent his career working, around the globe, in academic, private sector and philanthropic projects. His research focus is the scope and limitations of modelling nature with a variety of applications in artificial intelligence, computing, life sciences and modelling of social systems. Apart from his research efforts Jussi has played a key role in founding and advising several companies and philanthropic projects like academia.edu, DeepMind, Intellectual Ventures and Turkana Basin Institute as well as African Institute of Mathematical Sciences to mention a few. He is the founder and current Scientific Director of the Emmy Network.

### Hugh Woodin

Hugh Woodin is a mathematician and set theorist. He has made many notable contributions to the theory of inner models and determinacy. A type of large cardinals, the Woodin cardinals, bear his name. He joined Emmy Network in 2022.
