About Mark

Prof. Mark Lorch is Associate Dean for Engagement and a chemist (the kind that works in a lab, not in Boots) by training at the University of Hull. The University lets him out on a fairly regular basis to communicate science to anyone who wants to listen. With his science communication hat on Mark performs science shows, street entertainment as well churning out articles for numerous magazines and newspapers, including the Guardian. He’s always on the lookout for new mediums in which to communicate the wonders of science, recently this has involved spending a bit too much time playing Minecraft.
