About Dr. Meeks
J. Thadeus Meeks won the Sigma Xi Researcher of the Year Award in 2011. In 2009, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in Cognitive Psychology and he is now an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at SIUE. Dr. Meeks presently teaches Cognitive Psychology, Research Methods and Statistics, and Foundations of Psychology. His research interests broadly revolve around human learning and memory. More specifically, he is interested in such topics as how we remember to complete our intentions (prospective memory), how we remember the source of information, and how we experience the different varieties of memory. His research has been published in such journals as Memory & Cognition, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition, and the Journal of Memory and Language. Dr. Meeks also enjoys sports, outdoor activities, and cooking.
Dr. Meeks is available to mentor students interested in pursuing graduate degrees in experimental areas of psychology, especially those interested in cognitive psychology.
