Mark Halper is a UK-based freelance journalist who writes about everything from media moguls to subatomic particles. He currently focuses on the energy industry including nuclear, renewables and fossil fuels. His "go to" coverage of nuclear has led the reporting on promising alternative reactor technologies like fusion, thorium, molten salt and others.

Mark keeps a keen eye on manufacturing innovations and on the endless battle between telecom, media and technology companies. He has written about antimatter, cloning, pistachios, fish, landmines, surfing, medicine, patents, venture capital, you name it - always with a flair for spotting maverick individuals and disruptive forces. He also written for the Financial Times, the New York Times, the Independent on Sunday, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and many others, filing from London, New York, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Helsinki, Berlin, Cairo, Cannes and elsewhere.
