Robert D. Woodberry is director of the Project on Religion and Economic Change and a senior research professor at Baylor University. Most of his research uses comparative historical and statistical methods to analyze the long-term social impact of missions and religious change on societies around the world. However, he also studies optimal ways to measure and sample religious groups on surveys. His research appears in the American Sociological Review, Annual Review of Sociology, American Political Science Review and elsewhere, and has won fifteen academic awards – including the Luebbert Award for Best Article in Comparative Politics (2013) from the American Political Science Association, and the Best Article in Global and Transnational Sociology (2014) from the American Sociological Association.
