Science Cafés are live—and lively—events that take place in casual settings, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic. Chandler Science cafe is presented in association with the Arizona SciTech Festival.

Mark’s current work involves comparative planetology and terrestrial analogs: surface and geochemical evolution of hyper-arid and hypo-thermal environments on Earth (Antarctica) and Mars. Formerly an imagery lead with Desert Research and Technology Studies, NASA Johnson Space Center, Mark has also conducted research in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica.
