Geography of HSE University provides ample opportunities to experience and learn about nearly half of the country, and without understanding each of the campuses with their unique features there is no way to fully understand the idea of HSE on the whole. Last year The HSE Look began a series of articles focusing in-depth on each campus, starting with HSE St. Petersburg (see October 2017 issue), university’s 2nd largest campus, and we would like to continue the series with devoting the summer issue to HSE Nizhniy Novgorod. While being unmistakably a part of HSE University, each campus reflects the unique features of its region, and the readers can learn more about it in an interview with campus Director Valery Zusman. In this issue we also talk more about education programmes at HSE Nizhniy Novgorod with Deputy Director Anna Blyakhman, get an inside look into the work of the Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis with its head Valery Kalyagin, and travel to discover different Russias with Victor Albert, one of HSE’s international faculty members.
The Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis (LATNA) in Nizhny Novgorod is one of HSE’s international laboratories. It is co-supervised by Panos Pardalos, Distinguished Professor at the University of Florida, and Valery Kalyagin, Professor and Department Head at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics. Professor Kalyagin told The HSE Lookabout the lab’s research projects, its work with students, and engagement in the educational life of the campus and HSE at large.
In this issue of The HSE Lookwe would like to share several stories which might inspire to join the existing projects or start new ones. We present the interview with Prof. Fuad Aleskerov about the April conference and its role in informing the public debate and furthering research, as well as share impressions from international faculty. To showcase the variety of initiatives at HSE, we are glad to present the vibrant community of the German-language research conference Welt und Wissenschaftthrough an interview with Yulia Pasko. Traditionally, we also share the announcements of upcoming visits by invited scholars. Last but not least, we present the ‘Discovering HSE and Russia’ columns by Arnab Roy Chowdhury and Brian McLoone.
The HSE Look is delighted to present its readers with the interview with Fuad T. Aleskerov, HSE Tenured Professor, Head of the Department of Mathematics at the Faculty of Economic Sciences, and a long-time member of the April Conference programme committee, about the evolution of the Conference and its major highlights of this year.

It is not unusual for faculty staff to combine several roles, such as a researcher and a teacher, but sometimes they bring even more to the table. The HSE Look is glad to present an interview with Professor Angel Barajas, who initially joined HSE’s campus in Perm as a Leading Research Fellow of the International Laboratory of Intangible-Driven Economy and recently became the Head of the Department of Finance at HSE St. Petersburg, as well as the supervisor of a Master’s programme
