Dr. Mark Dixonmestrelab
Business Development & Application Support
After growing up in Manchester, England, Mark spent seven joyous years at Nottingham University playing drums and generally having a good time, while occasionally studying chemistry before graduating with a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry. Mark cut his teeth in Pharmaceutical R&D as an NMR Spectroscopy specialist at Fisons, then Astra, which finally morphed into AstraZeneca, all while sitting at the same desk. A fascination with the science of NMR eventually got the better of Mark, and so began an ongoing adventure to California, firstly with Varian in Palo Alto working with the Applications team, followed by a move to Marketing in the role of Software Product Manager. After the sad demise of Varian, Mark discovered the unpredictable frontier of benchtop NMR spectroscopy as Product Manager for Thermo Fisher Scientific’s picoSpin NMR spectrometer, before starting at Mestrelab Research in late 2016.
