Doctor of Philosophy (University of Queensland)

Stephen Cox completed a PhD in social psychology at the University of Queensland. After completing the PhD, he owned and operated a statistical consulting company. Since returning to academia, research interests have been on the functioning of global value chains, having published papers on the digital video game industry, and the mining industry. His current research focus is on the functioning of technological innovation systems within the clean energy, biorefining, biofuels and mining industries.  This research examines the innovation processes necessary for the development and diffusion of system changing technologies. Unfortunately, I am currently unable to supervise additional research students.

Additional information

After completing my PhD, I started a statistical consulting company. I provide advice and undertook statistical analyses for corporate clients, and university researchers who required advanced statistical support. Eventually I was 'in-sourced' back into academia as a methods and statistical adviser within the QUT Business School.
