Robert Remez​

Professor of Psychology

Barnard College

Robert Remez, professor of psychology, joined the faculty of Barnard in 1980. His teaching focuses on the relationships among perception, cognition and language. Since 1985, Professor Remez's research has been supported by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders under the project "Sensory and Perceptual Factors in Spoken Communication." One line of his research examines the perceptual organization of speech and seeks to explain how listeners can follow speech amid the sounds that strike the ear. In a second line of research, he studies the perceptible differences between individual talkers and the phonetic and qualitative aspects of these indexical properties.

Professor Remez is a member of the Board of Directors of Haskins Laboratories. During the 2006-7 academic year, Professor Remez was a Visiting Scholar at the Parmly Hearing Institute in Chicago.
