Prior to joining HGF, Mark worked in the naval shipbuilding industry and was responsible for the development of bespoke dynamics calculation techniques. This was predominantly for journal bearings subjected to shock loading but encompassed other areas of fluid-structure interaction. Whilst in this role, he was awarded Chartership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.
Before this Mark worked in the oil and gas industry as a field engineer, specialising in the uncertainty of wellbore placement during coiled tubing directional drilling. As a field engineer he spent time working on an onshore oil rig in the USA.
Prior to working in industry Mark completed a PhD at Imperial College London, in which he researched the air and underwater blast response of sandwich composite materials. Mark designed and implemented characterisation tests for polymeric foam materials and organised full-scale blast testing of large composite panels. Mark used these experiments to validate finite element simulation methods for use in naval vessel design, specifically for surface ship hulls.
During his undergraduate degree, also at Imperial College, Mark spent two summers working in industry. The first of these placements was in the oil and gas industry, designing test apparatus for offshore welding equipment. The second placement was in the power generation industry, where Mark developed uncertainty calculations for creep measurements on high pressure steam pipes. During his undergraduate degree, Mark was also part of a team which designed and built an electric motorcycle which raced in the Isle of Man TT road race.
