After an early career in international exploration plus development projects in the Gulf of Mexico working for a large US independent operator, Mark founded P.D.F.

He founded the PDF Fellowship (for collaborative research within the oil and gas industry), based at Plymouth University in 2005 and remains an active collaborator with this and other institutions.
