Mark Stokes is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology at Deakin University. Mark obtained his PhD from La Trobe University, where he also taught advanced cognitive neuroanatomy. Mark’s PhD was in the non-linear mathematical modelling and analysis of the neural substrate of circadian rhythms and the application of this model to the treatment of circadian disorders in various conditions including ageing. Following this work, Mark worked developing and managing epidemiological datasets of injury mortality and morbidity.
In 1999 Mark was appointed to Vanderbilt University, Tennessee where he taught advanced multivariate statistics at doctoral level and biological rhythms to undergraduate and post-graduate.
In 2000 Mark returned to Australia to be appointed the Director of the Victorian Injury Surveillance and Applied Research unit at Monash University, where he undertook development of multivariate and univariate statistical models to forecast injury epidemiology and the impact these would have on population quality of life. At this time Mark was elected to the board of Kidsafe Victoria, where he remains actively involved with to date, as President.
In 2002, Mark joined Deakin University. Presently, Mark teaches Basic and Advanced Multivariate Statistics and Design, and is actively involved in a number of research programs including Sexuality and Autism, the Evolutionary models of Behaviour, and Subjective Wellbeing.
