Mark is a field ecologist who has lived and worked in the Great Basin, Colorado Plateau, southern Appalachians, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. His interests and work experience are in applied ecology and conservation biology. His career has been evenly split between higher education and conservation work with government agencies that dealt with the management and recovery of populations of rare species of fish and amphibians, some of which are endangered. Prior to coming to the University of Wisconsin-Superior, he worked as the Colorado River Basin Native Fish Coordinator for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Prior to that (2009-2014), he was a Native Aquatic Species Biologist for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. He began his career in academics at Feather River College in northern California, where he was the head of the Wildlife and Fisheries program and managed a campus trout hatchery, and later moved on to Southern Utah University, where he taught for five years before transitioning to agency work.
