Dr. Jason Geller started as the new Research Programmer at RuCCS last July. Geller came to
RuCCS with a lot of experience and skills including a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Iowa State University. He spent the last three years in two postdoc positions—one at the University of Alabama-Birmingham working with Dan Mirman and one at the University of Iowa working with Inyong Choi and Bob McMurray.
Geller's main research interests are in psycholinguistics (visual and spoken word recognition),
learning and memory, and metascience/metaresearch issues. Last November, Geller was an invited speaker at a conference, Advancing Methods in Pupillometry, hosted by Johnathan Peele at
WashU where he spoke about his R package, "gazeR," which provides a standardized preprocessing pipeline to analyze gaze data from the visual world paradigm and pupil data from pupillometry studies.
Recently, Geller teamed up with Princeton colleagues to host a weekly version of the ReproducibiliTEA
Journal Club where they discuss diverse issues, papers, and ideas about improving science,
reproducibility, and the Open Science movement.
Since beginning his position, Geller has been a tremendous help to many at RuCCS. If you need
