Mark is a physicist from London.


He completed his undergraduate degree in Physics at the University of Leeds in 2011. He obtained his PhD in Physics from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Controlled Quantum Dynamics at Imperial College London in 2016, under the supervision of Dieter Jaksch at the University of Oxford and Martin Plenio at Ulm University. He then worked for two years as a postdoctoral researcher under Martin Plenio, before joining John Goold’s group at Trinity College Dublin in 2018. His research focuses on open quantum systems and their applications as thermal machines, sensors and platforms for investigating non-equilibrium many-body phenomena.
