Mark Broom obtained a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Oxford in 1989, followed by an MSc in Statistics (1990) and a PhD in Mathematics (1993) at the University of Sheffield. He then held a postdoctoral research position again at Sheffield (1993-5) and a temporary lecturing position at the University of Glasgow (1995-6). He joined the University of Sussex as a Lecturer in 1996, where he worked until the end of 2009, most recently as Reader in Mathematics, and he was the Head of the Department of Mathematics from 2007 to 2009. Mark was appointed as Professor of Mathematics at City University in January 2010.
Mark's research interests are in Mathematical Biology, in particular Evolutionary Game Theory. This includes both theoretical work on general games and the modelling of specific animal behaviours. Main research areas include multiplayer game theory, models of food stealing (kleptoparasitism), the signalling behaviour of prey species, and evolutionary processes on graphs.
In 2013, together with Jan Rychtář, he completed the book Game-Theoretical Models in Biology published by Chapman and Hall.
