Mark joined the School in 2002 and currently has 124 publications, 65 in peer-reviewed journals. His current research interests include hazard perception in driving and human factors in health care systems. His team designed the video-based hazard perception test used for driver licensing in Queensland, a patient observation chart that is being used in hospitals across Australian and New Zealand (associated with a 45% reduction in cardiac arrests in one hospital and a 11% reduction in overall mortality in another), and a new insulin chart that is currently undergoing national trials. Mark won the Innovation Excellence Award in the former Faculty of SBS and has also received awards for teaching excellence. He is part of the team behind Crime101x, an online course with nearly 40,000 enrolments to date, which won the 2016 Merlot award.
