Professor Marcus Kaiser

Marcus Kaiser, Ph.D. is Professor of Neuroinformatics at Newcastle University (UK).
Marcus is interested in complex networks, particularly in development, error-tolerance, structure, and function of biological networks. Therefore, he studies brain connectivity networks of cat and macaque as well as metabolic pathways and protein-protein interaction networks. This analysis of biological networks is covering various fields from neuroscience and biochemistry to numerical analysis and computer science.
He authored Changing Connectomes: Evolution, Development, and Dynamics in Network Neuroscience and his papers include Organization, development and function of complex brain networks, Nonoptimal Component Placement, but Short Processing Paths, due to Long-Distance Projections in Neural Systems, Clustered organization of cortical connectivity, Simulation of robustness against lesions of cortical networks, Spatial growth of real-world networks, A tutorial in connectome analysis: topological and spatial features of brain networks, and Temporal interactions between cortical rhythms.

Marcus studied biology at the Ruhr-University Bochum (Lab of Prof. Dr. K.P. Hoffmann) and computer science at the FernUni-Hagen (distance university). His master thesis (Diplomarbeit) under the supervision of Prof. Markus Lappe was about the visual localization of objects during saccadic eye movements. After that, he completed his Ph.D. studies at the Jacobs University Bremen in the group of Prof. Claus Hilgetag.
