Robert Remez, an American experimental psychologist and cognitive scientist, is Professor of Psychology at Barnard College, Columbia University and Chair of the Columbia University Seminar on Language & Cognition (founded in 2000).[1][2] His teaching focuses on the relationships between cognition, perception and language.[1] He is best known for his theoretical and experimental work on perceptual organization.[3][4] and speech perception.[5]

With Carol Fowler, Philip Rubin, and Michael Turvey, he introduced the consideration of speech in terms of a dynamical systems/action theory perspective.[6] With Rubin and various other colleagues, he has used the technique of sinewave synthesis as a unique tool for exploring perceptual organization.[7][8] He is the co-editor, with David Pisoni, of the Handbook of Speech Perception.[9] He was the Ann Olin Whitney Professor and former Chair of the Department of Psychology at Barnard College and is a member of the Board of Directors of Haskins Laboratories.

Remez is a graduate of Brandeis University and the University of Connecticut.[1]
