Prof. Dr. Felix Brandt
Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Brandt (b. 1973) studies the mathematical and complexity-theoretic foundations of the interaction of autonomous agents. His main fields of interest are algorithmic game theory and computational social choice, which lie at the intersection of theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, and economics.
After studying computer science and mathematics at TUM, Prof. Brandt received his doctorate in 2003. His thesis dealt with electronic auctions and was supervised by Prof. W. Brauer. He then spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University and a year at Stanford University in the USA. He qualified as a lecturer in 2010 at Munich’s Ludwig Maximilians University (LMU). His professorship was sponsored by the German Research Foundation's Heisenberg Program. Since 2012, he has a secondary appointment in the Department of Mathematics.
