Current Research

Markus' research focuses on (broadly) productivity analysis at the macro level, including the development and application of novel empirical methods. He is currently engaged in a three-year research project entitled 'Knowledge Accumulation and Diffusion: Analysing Heterogeneity in an Interconnected World,' for which he secured funding from the ESRC (UK Economic and Social Research Council) under the Future Research Leaders scheme. A second area of substantial research relates to economic development in China and Japan during the early modern period (18th and 19th centuries), specifically the dynamics of market integration. Other current research interests include the debt-growth nexus, structural change in low-income countries and gravity equations in international trade.

He is also 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.
