Publishable Stuff

Rasmus Bååth's Research Blog


I’m interested in statistics and data analysis, preferably the Bayesian kind, and how the powerful methods that now exists can be made available to a broader audience. I tend to spend too much time tinkering with R: the statistical programming language. Also, as part of my PHD, I’ve worked in the area of music cognition, especially rhythm perception and production.

Here follows a list of my publications and presentations:
