Welcome Tim Jenness

Tim Jenness joined the LSST Data Management group March 23 as Deputy System Architect. Tim will assist in all aspects of the DM system architecture, including refining the baseline design approved at Final Design Review (FDR) into the as-built design, doing "skunk works" rapid prototyping and evaluation projects, and helping institute good development processess. He brings a wealth of experience in large-scale processing systems and astronomical software in particular, and his ability to grasp the big picture while worrying the small details will be of great use. Prior to LSST, Tim was head of software for the CCAT telescope, and before that he was head of the scientific computing group for the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope and the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope.

Financial support for LSST comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE), and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded LSST Project Office is managed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE funded effort is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
