Michael Reuter, who has been working for LSST Project Systems Engineering since November, relocated to LSST headquarters in Tucson June 22. Michael is a Software Developer for LSST's Simulations efforts and reports to Systems Engineering Manager George Angeli. Working in close collaboration with the LSST Simulation Scientist and the Observatory Control System (OCS) team, Michael's primary responsibility is continuing improvements to the Operations Simulator. Prior to LSST, he worked at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he was a member of the Mantid Project, working on the development of data reduction algorithms.

Financial support for Rubin Observatory comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF) through Cooperative Agreement No. 1258333, the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science under Contract No. DE-AC02-76SF00515, and private funding raised by the LSST Corporation. The NSF-funded Rubin Observatory Project Office for construction was established as an operating center under management of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA). The DOE-funded effort to build the the Rubin Observatory LSST Camera (LSSTCam) is managed by the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC).
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1950 to promote the progress of science. NSF supports basic research and people to create knowledge that transforms the future.
NSF and DOE will continue to support Rubin Observatory in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
