Greg Fisher is the Managing Director of Synthesis. After growing up in the West Midlands, he studied Economics & Politics at St John’s College, University of Cambridge. Greg joined the Bank of England as a graduate entrant in 1995 and subsequently worked in a spectrum of roles that mixed economics and finance. Between 2004 and 2008, Greg worked for a hedge fund as a global macroeconomic strategist. Before joining the think-tank, ResPublica, in August 2010, he spent two years researching the new science of complex systems, and how it relates to economics and finance. Greg is a Senior Research Associate of the London School of Economics’ Complexity Group. His interests extend beyond pure economics, and include human psychology, neuroscience and cognitive science, and how these relate to our understanding of society.

Paul Ormerod is a Director at Synthesis. He is the author of 3 best-selling books on economics, Death of Economics (1994), Butterfly Economics (1998), Why Most Things Fail (2005), a Business Week US Business Book of the Year. He read economics at Cambridge and took the MPhil in economics at Oxford. He worked initially as a macroeconomic forecaster and modeller at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research in London. In the early 1980s he moved to the private sector as Director of Economics at the Henley Centre for Forecasting. The management team bought this from the Henley Management College and subsequently sold it to Martin Sorrel’s WPP Group. He founded Volterra Consulting in 1998 in order to carry out innovative work on practical policy questions in both the public and private sectors. In 2009 he was awarded an honorary DSc by Durham for the ‘distinction of his contributions to economics’. He publishes on complexity-related areas in a wide range of academic journals such as Proceedings of the Royal Society B(iology), Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Cultural Economics, Cultural Science, Physica A, Journal of British Academy of Social Science, Journal of Economic Interaction and Co-ordination , Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Mind and Society, and Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Orit Gal is a political economist specializing in the practical applications of complexity theories. Over the past decade she has concentrated much of her work on issues of complexity in conflict environments and the intersection between economic development and security.
She served as a senior researcher at the Operational Theory Research Institute of the Israeli Defense Forces (OTRI) where she worked to develop the civil economic dimension of military operational design. Prior to OTRI Orit worked as a project director for the Economic Cooperation Foundation (ECF), where she participated in track-two negotiations vis-à-vis the Palestinians, and developed policy recommendations on economic peace-building, and the potential role of international intervention. Previously an associate fellow at Chatham House, Orit is also a visiting lecturer at Regent’s College teaching International Political Economy, Development, and Strategy, all from a complexity perspective.

Rhett Gayle is a philosopher whose work has primarily focused on education and methods for improving thinking. He also has interests in the philosophy of leadership and teaching wisdom in the current academy. He is writing a book on the connections between Taoism and complexity science. Rhett is also involved in New Enlightenment Education, an initiative bringing together Chinese and Western approaches to education. He is Director of Philosophies at the University Project, a working group creating a new university in London. Through the miracle of the internet, while living in the UK he teaches philosophy at the University of Colorado, Boulder, from where he received his PhD.

David Hales is a computer scientist with research interests in the overlap between social science and distributed computer systems. He has focused on the bottom-up emergence of trust and cooperation in
systems without central control. His focus is applicable to new forms of online social interaction, such as those seen in peer-to-peer systems, that manifest highly cooperative collective behaviour without
relying on traditional economic incentives or central plans. He has applied and developed approaches and theories from agent-based modelling and evolutionary game theory to understand and design novel phenomena and systems. Recently he has become interested in how such approaches and technologies can be applied to value functions in communities offering alternatives to traditional centralised financial services where these are not readily available. He is a Senior Research Fellow at the Open University in complex systems design and Honorary Research Fellow at the Centre for Policy Modelling in Manchester. He holds a PhD in agent-based modelling and sits of the editorial board of Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation (JASSS) and Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications.
