Mark Jerrum graduated from Edinburgh University in 1981, where his advisor was Leslie Valiant. He remained at Edinburgh until 2007, when he moved to Queen Mary, University of London. He has a long-term interest in the computational complexity of counting problems, and in randomized algorithms, particularly those based on Markov chain Monte Carlo.
