Inside UVA podcast with Ken Ono

“Dr. Ken Ono says his greatest strength is his curiosity. That curiosity has taken him to the 100 year-old manuscripts of Srinivasa Ramanujan, to the US Olympic swimming team, to astronomical queries into black holes and even to Hollywood. Tune in to hear more about those adventures and why Dr. Ono says theoretical math is an art form.”
