Before beginning at AU, Mark was a biology professor, an administrator at Chicago-area colleges, and a medical writer. Mark pursues a wide range of interests in biology and he is especially interested in promoting scientific literacy and enhancing K-12 science education. He enjoys bird-watching and camping with his sons, Joe and Tom, and wears out quite a few shoes training for marathons and triathlons. A good day is filled with teaching and learning, challenging work, and with any luck, running, cycling, cooking, writing, reading poetry, and conversation with colleagues and loved ones. Mark lives in Malta, IL.
