Mark leads the Institute’s innovation efforts, converting health insights into tangible and sustainable health solutions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Prior to joining the Lowitja Institute, Mark built a track record in delivering game changing health and social innovations across the Aboriginal, homeless, gender and disability sectors.
For example, Mark in his role as Head of Corporate Responsibility for BP Australia led the development of Opal, a non-sniffable fuel that has created a 94 per cent reduction in deaths and permanent harm caused through petrol sniffing amongst remote communities. For this work, Mark received a Prime Ministerial Award for his contribution to Aboriginal communities.
