Dr Balazs Vedres, Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, discusses the implications and challenges of remote working.

Vedres’ research furthers the agenda of developing network science with social theoretical insight.  His research results were published in the top journals of sociology, with two recent articles in the American Journal of Sociology developing the pragmatist notion of structural folds: creative tensions in intersecting yet cognitively diverse cohesive communities.  Vedres’ recent research follows entrepreneurs, video game developers, jazz musicians, programmers, and graphic designers as they weave collaborative networks through their projects and recording sessions, analysing questions of the sources of creativity, gender inequality, and the historical sustainability of innovation systems. In another line of work, Vedres has analysed historical network evolution in the areas of transnational civic activism, politicised business groups, and the evolution of global economic flows.
