Markus has the following administrative roles within the School of Economics:
During the academic year 2018/9 Markus teaches Development Policy Analysis (ECON4013/L14050) on the Masters program (innovation, public debt), Applied Econometrics II (ECON2006/L12411) for second year UG students, and supervises dissertations for UG, MSc and PhD students.
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 and in the past fourty years (completed papers on banking crises in low income countries here and on sovereign default here).
Markus is 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). He has acted as a peer reviewer for grant applications to the ESRC and the Carnegie Trust for Scottish Universities, and has sat on commissioning panels for DfID-ESRC (Growth Research Programme: Call 2; Follow-on call [scheduled]) and the ESRC (Global Challenges Research Fund: Strategic Networks Call) funding calls. He is an Associate Editor for Empirical Economics (since 2018).
