BVSc (Hons) MANZCVS (Animal Welfare) PhD
Mark graduated with a BVSc (Hons) from the University of Sydney in 2003. Following graduation he worked mainly in shelter medicine for 10 years, starting with NSW RSPCA (2004 – 2009) before moving to the NSW Animal Welfare League to take on a management position (2009-2012). During this time he also volunteered for veterinary programs in Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Indonesia and India. In 2012 he returned to the University of Sydney to undertake a PhD investigating feline retroviral diseases, in particular FIV vaccine effectiveness in the field and FIV antibody response following vaccination. On completion of his PhD in 2016, Mark moved to the Centre for Virus Research at the University of Glasgow to undertake postdoctoral research in the antibody response of FIV and FeLV vaccinated cats, thanks to an Endeavour Research Fellowship and Sydney University Early Career Mobility Scheme Grant. Mark returned to Australia in 2017 to further pursue his reseach into feline retroviruses and a teaching career at the University of Sydney. Mark also co-founded Pets in the Park in 2012, a charity dedicated to providing free veterinary care to pets owned by the homeless, which now has clinics in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, ACT and Tasmania. Mark also enjoys running, particularly ultrarunning, and climbing mountains!
