Mark completed his undergraduate degree in Automotive Materials at Loughborough University in 2004 in the Department of Materials. He then went on to study for a PhD in oxidation of stainless steels with Dr Rebecca Higginson which he completed in 2008.

After his PhD he worked as a Research Associate at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Sheffield studying secondary electron dopant contrast using scanning electron microscopy. During this time he conducted pioneering research into the use of Helium microscopes (HeIM) for the examination of semiconductors in collaboration with Harvard University and Carl Zeiss.

In 2010 Mark returned to Loughborough to take a position as a Research Associate in the Department of Materials working with Professor Rachel Thomson on steels and superalloys for power plant applications and was promoted to Lecturer in Metallurgy and Microscopy in July 2012.
