Dr. Jason Geller has a Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology (with a certificate in quantitative psychology) from Iowa State University. Before joining the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) as a  Scientific Programmer in 2020,  he spent the last three years in  postdoctoral positions at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the University of Iowa studying the cognitive and neurological underpinnings of visual (e.g., word and semantic processing) and auditory (e.g., listening effort) language processing. Dr. Geller is also interested in better understanding and improving how people learn. Most of his work in the area of learning and memory has focused on metacognition and desirable difficulties (pre/retrieval and perceptual disfluency).  Across his various academic appointments, Dr. Geller has designed and carried out many behavioral, eye-tracking, physiological (pupillometry), and neurophysiological (EEG/sEEG) experiments using such programs as E-Prime, Experiment Builder (SR Eyelink), Psychtoolbox, Psychopy, OpenSeasme, Gorilla, and Qualtrics. Dr. Geller is proficient with several popular statistical software platforms (e.g., R, SPSS, SAS, Mplus), as well as several programming languages (e.g., R, Python, Matlab, and R).  Dr. Geller has also severed as an informal and formal consultant helping students and faculty design and program experiments and analyze data (frequentist and Bayesian).
