Mark received his Ph.D. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering with a minor in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. He is a lead scientist and is responsible for grain handling and storage research. He research focuses on improved aeration control strategies, heat as a sanitation pre-treatment to control insects in on-farm grain bins, identity preserved grain handling, reducing dust emissions from grain handling operations, and modeling the stored grain environment and the movement of grain in handling equipment.
