In the beginning of his career at the Technical University Munich and later at the University of Nijmegen, Markus worked mostly on the detection of microorganisms involved in different parts of the nitrogen cycle. This included ammonia oxidizing bacteria, anaerobic ammonium oxidizers (ANAMMOX) and denitrifying eukaryotes in many different environments, including wastewater, soil, freshwater and marine systems. Since joining the University of Vienna in 2008, he has continued to work with microscopic techniques, and is now responsible for several aspects of microscopy at CeMESS, including epifluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopy as well as laser microdissection and Raman spectroscopy.
