About the Author:

Robert Scherrer is Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vanderbilt University, where he arrived in 2003 following 15 years as a professor of physics at Ohio State University.  He received is A.B. in physics from Princeton University, spent two years at Cambridge University on a Marshall Scholarship, and then received his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Chicago.  While a professor at Ohio State, Scherrer received the Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching.  His teaching philosophy follows the advice of Hippocrates:  “First, do no harm.”  He believes that most physics students come to study physics because they find it interesting, and it is the teacher’s job to maintain that interest while navigating the sometimes-difficult subject matter.

 

Scherrer’s own research is in the area of theoretical cosmology, including the physics of the early universe, dark matter and dark energy, and the large-scale structure of the universe.  He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife and five children.
