Professional biography

Dr Doug Angus recently joined Bond University as an Assistant Professor of Psychology. Prior to his engagement at Bond University, he held research positions at The University of Sydney, and The University of New South Wales. He completed my PhD at The University of New South Wales. Before this, he studied psychology at The University of Auckland. His research primarily focuses on how theories of motivation and emotion are informed by neuroscience and psychophysiology. His PhD research used electroencephalography to examine the time-course of neural activity involved in reward anticipation and consumption, and how these processes interact with anger and aggression. Dr Doug Angus’s current research agenda encompasses five broad areas; 1. Temporally and psychologically discrete aspects of reward processing 2. Anger and its association with positive emotional states 3. Self-regulation and decision making in emotional contexts 4. Meta-cognition about affective states 5. Frontal cortical-subcortical imbalances, cognitive function, and healthy aging
