Mark received his MS in International Development and his PhD in agronomy at UC Davis. He began working for UC Cooperative Extension as an Area Agronomy Advisor in the Sacramento Valley in 2013. Since 2015 he has served as Assistant CE Specialist in Grain Cropping Systems at UC Davis. His research and extension efforts 1) leverage existing knowledge and emerging technology to solve practical problems; 2) produce outcomes that inform both production and environmental concerns; and 3) communicate these outcomes in farmer-accessible formats as well as to the broader scientific community.
