Andrew Connolly has been a Professor a UW since 2007. His work has focused principally on large astronomical surveys such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the Large Synoptic Sky Survey. He currently runs the UW data management group for LSST which works on developing software, analyzing the data that will come out of the LSST, and he also runs the LSST simulation group–which is developing high fidelity simulations of the data LSST researchers expect to find. His science focuses on analyzing large astronomical data sets to study the formation and evolution of galaxies and cosmology, using techniques such as photometric redshifts.
Lisa R. Lattuca studies curriculum, teaching, and learning in college and university settings. Her research focuses on how curricular, instructional, and organizational conditions shape students’ educational experiences and learning outcomes. She is currently studying the impact on student learning and persistence in STEM majors of the M-STEM Academies at the University of Michigan, and the use of vertically integrated project teams that engaged intergenerational groups of students in team projects driven by faculty research in a consortium of 20 U.S. colleges and universities.
Dr. Lattuca is also well known for her work on interdisciplinary in higher education settings, and is studies how various programmatic features, from faculty beliefs to program and curricular arrangements, affect students’ learning in interdisciplinary major programs.
