Mark is an expert in the emerging field of comparative environmental politics, which combines elements of comparative politics, comparative public policy and international relations. He is particularly interested in the relationship between climate change policy and political economy, with extensive research experience in both the developing and developed worlds. His objective is to build a bottom-up understanding of global climate change politics through rich, contextualized comparative research as well as rethinking international relations and policy theory to better accommodate domestic politics and public policy. Other elements of Mark's research include the international politics of climate finance as well as the political economy of climate and energy policy in North America, with a particular interest in the nascent North America carbon market established between California and Quebec. Mark earned a PhD in political science at the University of Toronto in 2013 and completed a SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship at the London School of Economics in 2014. He joined the Département de stratégie, responsabilité sociale et environnementaleatthe École des Sciences de la Gestion, Université du Québec à Montréal (ESG-UQAM)in 2018. He is also co-founder and executive director of the Institut québécois du carbone (www.iqcarbone.org) which seeks to advance climate policy research in Quebec.
