Dr Markus Brede is part of the Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

After gaining a "diploma" (equivalent to a master's degree) in theoretical physics I completed a PhD on network models of the immune system at the University of Leipzig. I then spent the next 8 years in Australia, initially working as a postdoctoral fellow and later as a research scientist for CSIRO's Centre for Complex Systems Science. My work there was focused on socio-economic models (attempting to understand the use of renewable and finite resources via approaches from evolutionary game theory), network models (with an emphasis on understanding the role of spatial constraints on network formation) and understanding the link between the structure and function of complex systems (i.e. understanding various dynamics, as e.g. synchronization, on networks). In September 2011 I joined the University of Southampton as Senior Lecturer.

Research interests

Most of my research interests revolve around two themes:

1) Understanding the relationship structure and function of sparsely coupled complex systems. Two areas in which I am particularly interested are:

  • Synchronization processes on networks
  • Evolutionary games on structured populations

2) Socio-economic systems, in particular:

  • Understanding the interplay between resource dynamics and resource exploitation (with applications to fisheries models or climate change )
  • Non-equilibrium economic modelling
  • Modelling actor heterogeneity and diversity
