Associate Professor in Digital Communication, Queensland University of Technology

Daniel Angus is Associate Professor of Digital Communication in the School of Communication at Queensland University of Technology. His research focuses on the development of visual computational analysis methods for communication data, with a specific focus on conversation data. His novel computational methods have improved our understanding of the nature of communication in medical consultations, conversations in aged care settings, television broadcast, social media, and newspaper reporting. Daniel has been involved in computer science research for 15 years and contributes regularly to media and industry on the impact of technology on society.

Daniel received the BS/BE double degree in research and development, and electronics and computer systems, and the PhD degree in computer science from Swinburne University of Technology, in 2004 and 2008, respectively. Between 2008 and 2018 he worked in a number of roles at The University of Queensland, leading collaborative research at the intersection of computer science, design, communication, linguistics, and journalism. He is currently an Associate Investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, and a member of QUT’s world-leading Digital Media Research Centre.
