Mark Pennington

Professor of Public Policy and Political Economy


“There is a tendency to think that you are the most important person in the world and you’re not. People aren’t actually always thinking about what you’re doing”, Mark Pennington claims. The coolest thing about his job as Professor of Public Policy and Political Economy? “When you present an idea to people, they’ve never heard of it before or never thought about a problem in a particular way and you see their faces light up with excitement.”
