A timely look at why and how ideas, false news and diseases spead. And how, in an increasingly small world, can we control them?

Adam Kucharski is an associate professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, working on global outbreaks such as the Ebola epidemic and the Zika virus. He is a TED fellow and winner of the 2016 Rosalind Franklin Lecture Award and the 2012 Welcome Trust Science Writing Prize. He has written for all major publications and in his latest book, The Rules of Contagion: Why Things Spread, he will reveal how new mathematical approaches are transforming what we know about contagion in all its forms
