Robert (Bob) Wayne Thomason (5 Nov 1952-Nov 1995) was an American mathematician. Towards the end of his short life, he worked in Max Karoubi‘s lab. at Paris VII. His main contributions were in homotopy theory, algebraic geometry and algebraic K-theory, where he carefully used advanced category theoretic methods.
