LSST received its federal construction start in August of 2014. This website supports the LSST Project Office in its construction of the facility.
The LSST Project Office is pleased to welcome Administrative Assistant Carol Chirino to the LSST team. Carol will support daily operation of the LSST office in Chile, including providing support for local and visiting staff. She will coordinate LSST administration in Chile with the LSST Project Office in Tucson. Most recently a bi-lingual administrative specialist for Gemini South Operations Support, Carol has 12 years experience in demanding office environments. Before Gemini, she worked as an administrative assistant for the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmondton, Alberta, Canada.
Carol's first day with the LSSTPO is August 1, 2014. Her contact information can be found in the LSST Contacts Database, which is accessible from the project office website's home page.
