F. Mark chadwick
Mark is an Imperial College Research Fellow. He joined Imperial College London in December 2018. Before then he was at the École Polytecnique Fédérale Lausanne (EPFL) as an EPFL Fellow in the group of Prof. Kay Severin. Before that he had a post-doctoral research position with Prof. Andrew Weller (Oxford). He carried out his DPhil research under the supervision of Prof. Dermot O’Hare. When not in the lab Mark enjoys rugby and skiing.
