John Angus is currently professor of mathematics and director of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences at Claremont Graduate University. He is also co-director of the PhD program in Computational Science offered jointly by CGU and San Diego State University.

Before joining CGU in 1990, Angus worked 15 years as a systems engineer for Hughes Aircraft Company. In that role, Angus was primarily responsible for the reliability analysis of many of Hughes’ command, control, and communications systems and for research and development in systems effectiveness. After leaving Hughes as a senior scientist, Angus consulted for Raytheon Corporation, developing satellite navigation and safety algorithms for several satellite-based navigation systems, including the Federal Aviation Administration’s Wide Area Augmentation System, the Navy’s Joint Precision Approach Landing System, and Japan’s Multi-functional Satellite Augmentation System.

Angus has presented at numerous conferences sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and at the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. He has given invited talks on the mathematics of Satellite Navigation at the University of California at Riverside and the Instituto Technologic Autonomo de Mexico. Angus also served as an associate editor or referee for several journals, including the Journal of Futures Markets, Journal of the Institute of Navigation, and Mathematical and Computer Modeling. He was a Hughes Fellow and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, and he is a member of the Institute of Navigation, American Statistical Association, Institute of Mathematical Statistics, and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
