Mark Meyer graduated in economics from the University of Bielefeld. With his major academic interests in empirical economics and statistics, he started working for GWS in 2008. As a member of the "Global Developments and Resources" division management, he is meanwhile responsible for the substantive and methodological development of the "Resources" subject at GWS.
At GWS, his work has become progressively focused on addressing circular economy transitions within planetary boundaries. Within respective research and development activities, Mark’s work is equally concerned with the monitoring of current developments of sustainability indicators of the 2030 Agenda (like, e.g., the material footprint, RMC) as well as with integrated sustainability assessments of medium- to long-term macroeconomic transformation pathways.
Given his longstanding thematic and methodological expertise in key action areas of transformation research, Mark is well-versed with status quo analysis, modeling, and assessment techniques as applied by key multinational institutions such as the International Resource Panel (IRP) of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). His expertise in the application of econometric methods (also to non-resource economic research questions) is also reflected by scientific publications in AStA Advances in Statistical Analysis, Empirical Economics, Organization Science, and Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics & Econometrics, among others.
