Professor Mark Jaksa is Professor of Geotechnical Engineering in the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering at the University of Adelaide, Australia. He has been an academic for almost 30 years, before which, he spent 4 years practicing as a consulting geotechnical and civil engineer in Adelaide and Canberra. He has a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree in Civil Engineering and a PhD, both from the University of Adelaide.

He has published 150 papers, chapters and reports on various aspects of geotechnical engineering research and teaching. His primary areas of expertise are in the characterisation of the spatial variability of soils, probabilistic analyses, artificial intelligence, ground improvement and enhancing learning in geotechnical engineering. He has received several awards recognising his contributions to learning and teaching in geotechnical engineering.

Mark is a former Chair of the Australian Geomechanics Society and is the current Vice-President for Australasia and Treasurer of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. He is the past Chair of the ISSMGE’s Technical Committee, TC306, on Geo-engineering Education and an executive member of TC304, Risk Assessment and Management.

His research interests include:
- Spatial variability of soils
- Probabilistic analysis and design in geotechnical engineering
- Artificial intelligence (ANNs, SVM, GP)
- Ground improvement using rolling dynamic compaction and dynamic compaction
- Geostatistics
- Optimisation of site investigations
