Bio of the Speaker

Prof. David Nussbaum, Ph. D., C. Psych.
Assistant Professor, University of Toronto Scarborough (retired); ISGAP Senior Research Fellow

Prof. Nussbaum was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) between 2005 and 2013. Prior to his position at UTSC, he was an Adjunct Professor at York University from 1984 to 2004. More recently from 2011 through 2020, Prof. Nussbaum held a series of renewed Guest (Visiting) Professorships at the China University of Political Science and Law, Beijing, China. Originally setting out to be a clinical psychologist, he instead followed a radically different approach to understanding behavior that was afforded by a third-year undergraduate course entitled “Molecular Psychobiology”. Following graduate school, he retrained as a clinician and worked within forensic settings doing both clinical work and research.  Prof. Nussbaum was continuously struck by the absence of behavioral neuroscience in the forensic area and conducted both his clinical practice and empirical research within a behavioral neuroscience framework. An elected Fellow of both the Canadian (CPA) and American Psychological Associations, he was awarded Professor of the Year (Psychology) at UTSC in 2011. He served as Chair of the CPA Sections on Criminal Justice (7 years), Psychopharmacology (23 years), and Extremism and Terrorism (6 years.) Prof. Nussbaum has also served as a Psychology Member of the Ontario Review Board since 1997. He has lectured internationally including Belgium, China, Finland, Germany, Japan, Israel, Kenya, Sweden, and the United States.  His research interests span Behavioral Neuroscience, Epistemology of Psychology, Violent Risk Prediction and Extremism & Terrorism.  He has published 45 peer reviewed papers, and delivered over 125 peer reviewed talks at professional and scientific meetings and conferences.
