Dr Mark Hoggard


Pronouns: he/him

I am a postdoc working on problems relating to sea level and mantle dynamics. I am interested in many areas of Earth science, but have recently been focussing on locating metal deposits that are needed to support sustainable development and the transition to a low-carbon economy. I am passionate about disseminating knowledge of geoscience problems that are important to society. I was born in northern England, am an avid climber, and love learning about the world through interactions with new people.
