Dr Oliver Bauman is originally from Germany and has joined Bond University in 2018. He received his Master of Psychology with specialisation in Neuropsychology from the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (Germany) and his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Regensburg (Germany). He is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the Australasian Cognitive Neuroscience Society (ACNS).
He has worked at several high-profile academic institutions including Aalborg University (Denmark), University of Oslo (Norway), the University of Glasgow (U.K.), and the University of Queensland (Australia). Dr Baumann has received several competitive awards and grants (e.g. University of Queensland Research Excellence Award, Griffith University Discovery Award, Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Award (DECRA); National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Project Grant). His work also generated considerable media interest (e.g. Australian Broadcast Cooperation, Sydney Morning Herald, Courier Mail, Canadian Broadcast Cooperation).
Dr Baumann has made seminal discoveries in the area of human spatial perception, memory and emotion. To address fundamental and applied psychological questions, he uses a combination of human behavioural, psychophysiological and neuroimaging methods.
I am an experimental psychologist and cognitive neuroscientist using a combination of human behavioural testing, electrophysiology, and neuroimaging.
The focus of my research in the last years has been on understanding memory processes and wayfinding behaviour.
In addition, I am interested in environmental psychological processes, i.e. how indoor and outdoor environments influence our cognitions and emotions.
Statement for HDR students
I have experience supervising student research projects across a range of topics relating to emotional, cognitive, neural, and social processes. I am happy to discuss potential projects with prospective students.
