Mark is excited to be teaching English and History at Fusion, among a few other topics. He is currently finishing up his PhD in Philosophy at Northwestern University. His research and teaching at Northwestern focuses on Philosophy of Emotion, Artificial Intelligence, and Climate Change. Outside of class, Mark’s two biggest passions are comedy and the outdoors. He improvises every week at comedy clubs in Chicago and he guides multi-week expedition whitewater rafting trips in Northern Canada and Alaska. He is a first generation Canadian with Scottish parents and has lived in the US for six years now so he likes pie, rain, and apologies.
