Bob Mathieu has been on the faculty of the Department of Astronomy of the University of Wisconsin-Madison since 1987. He was educated at Princeton University and the University of California at Berkeley, after which he became a fellow of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He has served as president of the Board of Directors of the WIYN Observatory and now chairs the University Committee of UW-Madison. His research involves the formation and evolution of binary stars and the dynamics of star clusters.
While associate director of the National Institute for Science Education, he led the development of the Field-tested Learning Assessment Guide (FLAG) and research-based resources in collaborative learning and teaching with technology, all designed for science, engineering and mathematics faculty (http://www.wcer.wisc.edu/nise/cl1).
He presently directs the National Science Foundation Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL; http://www.cirtl.net/), whose mission is to prepare STEM graduate students to be both forefront researchers and excellent teachers. He also is the principal investigator of an NSF project to upgrade the Student Assessment of Learning Gains (SALG) instrument into a robust online tool suitable for evaluation use by individual instructors, entire departments, and developers of new teaching and learning approaches.
