About

Proudly hailing from Port Colborne, Canada, Mark received a B.A. (History) (2008), and a B.Sc. (2006) and M.Sc. (2008) in Engineering Physics from Queen’s University, Kingston. Working with Prof. James Fraser, his thesis concerned the ultrafast dynamics of photoluminescence from individual, air-suspended, single-walled carbon nanotubes. He then received a Ph.D. in Physics under the supervision of Sir Richard Friend at the University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory, where his publications focussed on the process of singlet exciton fission in small-molecule organic semiconductors. He then pursued postdoctoral studies with Prof. Moungi Bawendi in the Department of Chemistry at MIT, studying the photophysics of colloidal quantum dots, and in collaboration with Prof. Marc Baldo, in the Center for Excitonics, studying exciton dynamics at hybrid organic-inorganic interfaces.
