Mark joined the School of Law as a Lecturer in January 2017. He holds an LLB (Hons)(2009) from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, an LLM in Medical Law and Ethics (2011) from the University of Edinburgh, and a PhD (2016) from the University of Manchester entitled: “The Right to Health and Access to Pandemic Influenza Vaccines: Procurement Options for Developing States”.

Prior to joining Keele, Mark was a Lecturer of Law at Birmingham City University where he taught English Legal System and Public Law. Prior to this he was a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Manchester, where he taught Tort Law, Public Law and contributed sessions on intellectual property law, and access to medicines at postgraduate level.

Mark’s research can be divided into two categories. First, he is particularly interested in how intellectual property rights interact with vaccine products. This includes examining to what extent intellectual property rights impact upon access to vaccines, particularly in developing states, and considering if intellectual property rights incentivise the creation of vaccines in the first place. This research has largely focussed on pandemic influenza vaccines up until this point. Second, regarding global health law, he is interested in pandemic response and management, and the law of international organisations in the context of global health.

Mark’s research interests generally span the fields of medical law and ethics, intellectual property rights, public health, and international law.
