Eric Hsu is Professor and Chair of Mathematics at San Francisco State University, and Director of the Center for Science and Mathematics Education. He has led numerous STEM education projects: he is PI on SF CALL and co-PI on CS4SF, two NSF grants to broaden participation in computer science; co-PI on the Western Regional Noyce Alliance, teacher PD for the Western U.S.; co-PI on two NSF Noyce grants; campus PI on three regional partnerships with community colleges: Bay Area Math Collaborative, Silicon Valley Engineering Technical Pathways and SF Bay Area Basic Skills Consortium. He has led four California Math Science Partnerships: with SF Unified twice and San Rafael City Schools twice. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2003 for his work on college math teaching.
He was co-PI on Revitalizing Algebra, an NSF Math Science Partnership partnering with local school districts to improve the teaching of algebra; and was co-leader of PRIME and PRIME2 with SF Unified focusing on 4th and 5th grade math, TCAAP with San Rafael City Schools focusing on lesson study for grades 5-8, and ITEAMS with San Rafael City Schools working with 3rd-8th grade STEM teachers. He was a case study team leader for a large-scale national study of calculus teaching with the Mathematical Association of America. He received a Bachelors in Mathematics at Harvard, a Ph.D. in Mathematics from U.C. Berkeley studying operator algebras with Dan Voiculescu, and was a postdoctoral scholar at U.T. Austin with Uri Treisman.
