Dr Mark D. Mackenzie

Mark received a BSc (Hones) in Physics from Edinburgh University in 2011 and an MSc in Photonics and Optoelectronic Devices from Heriot-Watt and St Andrews Universities in 2012. He is currently studying towards a PhD focusing on creating a protein based cell laser (using HEK cells containing GFP) and microfluidic devices (produced by ultrafast laser inscription and hydrofluoric acid etching).
