Bio: Mark is a doctoral student in the Engineering Systems Division at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He works as a research assistant in the Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment, focusing on advanced fermentation pathways for the production of drop-in renewable jet fuel. The work aims to evaluate a range of production technologies on the basis of their lifecycle greenhouse gas footprint, consumptive water footprint and production cost, and to use these metrics to evaluate advanced fermentation against other renewable jet fuel production technologies. Mark holds a MS in Technology and Policy from MIT, and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
