Dr Mark Mulligan

Member of staff, Geography Department, King's College London.


Mark loves being out in the field, collecting research data but is also a whizz on the computer, particularly  when it comes to GIS and remote sensing,  His research has taken him to many far-flung places so he has lots of experience in planning expeditions as well as many tales we enjoy hearing about.  He has been Honorary Secretary of the RGS-IBG Expeditions and Fieldwork Committee and is a member of the RGS-IBG Mapping Unit.
