Markus Brueckner is Professor in the Research School of Economics of the Australian National University. He is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. 

Markus has broad research interests in macroeconomics. His primary research field is economic growth and development; secondary research fields are international economics and political economy. Markus has published widely in leading international journals and regularly acts as a referee in the peer review process of these journals. Markus's endeavor is to conduct research that provides a bridge between academics and policy makers; combines empirical analysis with theory; and stimulates the interests of a broad audience of students in Economics.

Through his publications, Markus has made a significant impact on the profession. In REPEC he has been consistently ranked among the top 5 authors worldwide in the 2010 PhD cohort during the past 5 years. His publications have been referenced in all of the leading journals of his fields, as well as all of the leading general interest journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, Quarterly Journal of Economics, and Review of Economic Studies.

Markus has been engaged in numerous consulting projects for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. He has advised these institutions on a wide range of issues relating to economic growth in developing economies. Markus provided advice on both general issues such as, what is the role of state ownership on the impact that natural resources have on economic growth; as well as country- and region-specific issues relating to economic growth in Latin America and the Carribean, the Russian Federation, Middle East and North Africa, East Africa, and South-East Asia.

Markus has also been engaged with Australia's Commonwealth Departments. He was a Macroeconomic Advisor in the Macroeconomic Modelling and Policy Division of the Australian Treasury. As a member of a team put together by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in a joint project with the IMF, he gave lectures on the macroeconomic management of natural resources at the Africa Training Institute in Mauritius.
