Mark attended the University of Wisconsin - Platteville, starting September of 2012. During the summers of Undergrad, Mark gained experience working as a refrigeration engineering intern at Bassett Mechanical and as a manufacturing engineer co-op at the Trane Company. After some experiences in industry, Mark decided to spend a summer doing research at Georgia Tech’s Integrated Acoustics Laboratory under Dr. Ken Cunefare. Here, Mark became interested in sound and vibration applications, working on a project involving the harvesting of energy from noise in hydraulic systems. Mark’s continued interest in research led him to pursue graduate school. In 2016, Mark started at BU in the sound and vibration laboratory under Dr. Greg McDaniel. Mark has worked on a variety of projects including designing and testing of multistage vibration isolation mounts and engineered metallic foam for controlling sound and vibration.

Mark enjoys playing soccer and plays in few local leagues throughout the year. He also enjoys yearly camping/fishing trips with friends in the northwoods of Wisconsin.
