Professor of Digital Communication, Queensland University of Technology

Prof. Daniel Angus is Professor of Digital Communication in the School of Communication, and leader of the Computational Communication and Culture program in QUT’s Digital Media Research Centre. His research focuses on the development and application of visual computational analysis methods in communication and media studies, with a specific focus on conversation and social media 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 20 years and he contributes regularly to media and industry on the impact of technology on society.

Daniel received a 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 an Associate Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision Making & Society, and a Chief Investigator on the ARC Discovery Projects, Evaluating the Challenge of ‘Fake News’ and Other Malinformation, and Using machine vision to explore Instagram’s everyday promotional cultures.
