Jeff Rouder has traversed academic disciplines receiving degrees in physics, cultural anthropology and mathematical behavioral sciences, an interdisciplinary program across the social sciences. He finally settled on psychology as a postdoctoral fellow where he specialized in human perception, memory and cognition. Since coming to Missouri, however, Dr. Rouder has found a calling at the interface of science and statistics. He endeavors to understand how evidence may be stated for psychological regularities. Dr. Rouder has published 80 articles and has been continuously funded by National Science Foundation during his 16 year tenure at Missouri. He is the current Middlebush Chair of Social Sciences.
