SciLux podcast – Bruno Teheux, assistant professor in Mathematics
27 June 2023
Science Meets Communication
Mathematics is not always about calculation. But it is for sure about creativity. This is even more the case for Bruno Teheux, for whom scientific communication is another entry point into science and above all a passion.
Bruno Teheux is Assistant Professor at the Departement of Mathematics of the University of Luxembourg. Specialised in Algebra, his research interests are related to the fields of:
- (co)-algebraic approaches to modal and many-valued logics and their applications to computer science, game theory and social choice;
- universal algebra and topological dualities (including natural dualities);
- order and lattice theory;
- functional equations and inequations arising from decision mathematics;
- algebraic approach to aggregation function theory and qualitative integrals.
Bruno Teheux is also very active when it comes to science communication and outreach activities. He is behind numerous projects including workshops, exhibitions, seminars, books, etc.
When research goes public
Putting people into the situation of doing math, like a researcher, is really exciting.Bruno Teheux
Bruno Teheux believes that outreach activities “give to people the opportunity to experience the life a researcher in math”. By playing a game, being part into an interactive workshop, he wants people to experience mathematics without being conscious in the first hand, that they are doing math.
Listen to Bruno Teheux to learn more about mathematics research in Luxembourg and the importance of research outreach activities.
Together with Hugo Parlier, professor of Mathematics at the University of Luxembourg, Bruno Teheux has created several games and activities such as:
- “Recreate: shapes from the collective imagination“, a twofold interactive math exhibition at the Luxembourg Pavilion of Expo2020 Dubaï (March 2022);
- “The simplicity of complexity“, a general audience workshop at the Luxembourg Pavilion of Expo2020 Dubaï (December 2021);
- Lux:plorations Vol II: a science comics booklet made by PhD students and artists from Luxembourg;
- Multiplicities, celebrating the diversity of mathematics and mathematicians.
The Sound Of Data
Have you ever wondered what data sounds like?
One of Bruno’s latest project is a data sonification project called “The Sound of Data”, part of the ReShape project, for Esch 2022, the European Capital of Culture. For this project, he collected over 20,000 drawings and gave them to musicians who composed music based on them. Here are two of them: music by Mike von der Nahmer and music by Timelord.
