Markus' research is primarily focused on three areas: first, productivity analysis at the macro level, where he recently completed a project entitled 'Knowledge Accumulation and Diffusion: Analysing Heterogeneity in an Interconnected World,' funded by the ESRC (UK Economic and Social Research Council). The most recent work here is on 'absorptive capacity' with collaborators from Ghent University. A second area of substantial research relates to economic development in China and Japan during the early modern period (18th and 19th centuries), especially the dynamics of market integration. Completed papers on Chinese disintegration are available here and here. A third area relates to the analysis of financial crises since the 19th century (research in progress).
Markus is a Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of African Economies, University of Oxford, and a Research Affiliate at the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) in the Macro and Growth group. At Nottingham he is an internal research fellow in the Centre for Finance, Credit and Macroeconomics (CFCM), the Centre for Research in Economic Development and Trade (CREDIT), the Granger Centre for Time Series Econometrics and the Centre for Research on Globalisation and Economic Policy (GEP).
