Patricio Guillermo (Pat) Herbst is a professor of education and mathematics and chair of the Educational Studies Program since September 2015. His scholarship is concerned with the mathematical qualities of students’ work in classrooms and the instructional practices and teacher decisions that support that work, especially in high school mathematics classrooms and with particular attention to the use of reasoning and proof to solve problems and develop new ideas (with particular attention to geometry). His scholarship has contributed to describe and understand the rationality behind the work of teaching from a perspective that pays close attention to the mathematical and institutional situatedness of instruction. Over the years, and with generous research funding from the National Science Foundation and other sources, those interests have taken him to contribute also to the design of digital media and software technologies for the study of teaching (to be found at www.lessonsketch.org) and to research and development in mathematics teacher education. All of those activities are carried out in the context of the GRIP, a research and development laboratory that Herbst has maintained through external funding since 2001. Professor Herbst teaches courses on mathematics instruction to prospective teachers; he also teaches courses on research on mathematics instruction and mathematical thinking and learning to doctoral students in mathematics education. Professor Herbst is on various editorial boards, including the *Journal for Research in Mathematics Education *and has served as consultant and evaluator of project and scholars in the U.S. and abroad. He received his PhD from the University of Georgia in 1998 and has been on the U-M faculty since 1999. Originally from Argentina, Herbst speaks Spanish at home. Outside of the university, he is on the board of directors of the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Washtenaw County and contributes to efforts to reduce poverty and homelessness and to increase opportunity for Latinos.
