Research interests

Dr Mark Griffin's research focuses on the intersection of business management, text analytics and psychometrics. The core of this research can be described by four main projects:

  • Queensland Ambulance Service - Mark leads a research group conducting analysis of incident reports collated by the Queensland Ambulance Service. The QAS visits approximately 700,000 incidents per year where QAS staff complete a report detailing each incident. Specifically this work focuses on motor vehicle accidents, and also uses data from the National Road Strategy.
  • The health and wellbeing of people in the workforce – Employees face a number of challenges in finding true job satisfaction including stress management, differences between the tasks involved in a particular job and the employee’s own skills and interests, and inter-personal relationships with other employees and team managers. Mark’s team explores these issues within the HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) survey, where HILDA has followed approximately 14,000 individuals each year since 2001 to the present.
  • Electrical Energy Production across Australia - Mark leads a research group exploring the supply and demand for electrical energy across Australia. This work is being done using data from the Australian Energy Market Operator.
  • Online Sample Size Calculator - Mark leads a research group creating an online sample size calculator in R. This software will be used by managers of medical trials who wish to know how many patients to enrol in their trials. This work is being conducted in partnership with research collaborators at Harvard University. This project uses R for developing a web interface and for the mathematical equations involved.
