Mark completed his undergraduate studies in law and politics with First Class Honours at the University of Lincoln in 2000. After a year of work and travel, Mark returned to education and completed an LLM (Joint Masters) in European Law at the University of Nottingham (with distinction overall) and the University of Maastricht in 2002, with funding being awarded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). In the summer of 2002, Mark studied European Union law at the Academy of European Law, European University Institute, Florence. In 2002 Mark began his PhD at the University of Nottingham, with funding again being awarded by the AHRC. The thesis was completed and awarded in 2006. During his time at Nottingham, Mark taught EU Constitutional Law and EC Trade Law.
Mark joined the School of Law in 2005. During the summer of 2008 Mark was a visiting scholar at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge. Whilst there Mark carried out research for his project entitled ‘EU Governance in AIDS, Cancer and Obesity: Governmentality, Citizenship and Polity’. The British Academy has awarded Mark funding for this project. The project also involved research interviews with EU institution and agency representatives and civil society actors in London and Brussels.
Mark has led several research projects, all producing novel networks and published outputs. The projects include the first Annual School of Law Workshop 2008 ‘Biotechnology, European Law and Citizens’ the Economic and Social Research Council sponsored seminar series ‘ European Law and New Health Technologies’ and the UACES sponsored ‘A Symposium with Professor Roger Brownsword: Super-stewardship in the Context of Public Health’ . Mark is currently completing his monograph The Biopolitics of EU Public Health Governance: HIV/AIDS, Cancer and Pandemic Influenza (Hart Publishing, Oxford, 2013 forthcoming). Mark presents his research through these academic events as well as conferences. In 2011 Mark was appointed a member of the Northern Ireland DNA Database Governance Board.
Using interdisciplinary insights from law, regulatory theory, critical theory, sociology and science and technology studies, Mark examines the governance of life itself by law and regulation (often termed ‘biopolitics’). Mark’s work focuses on the European and global dimensions of two substantive areas: public health and new health technologies. A key focus of this research is public or citizen participation.
