Markus Knell was born in 1968 and studied Philosophy, Sociology and Economics at the University of Vienna, the University of California (San Diego) and the University of Zurich. He was a Universitätsassistent at the University of Vienna and the University of Zurich and now works for the department for economic research at the Oesterreichische Nationalbank.



Knell's work takes both a theoretical and empirical approach to the design of a system of social security that is resistant to demographic transformation and the risks of the financial market.
