Professor Zeljko Ivezic of the University of Washington has been associated with the LSST Project since its inception in the early 2000’s.  In September 1, 2018, he became Deputy Director of the LSST Construction Project in addition to Project Scientist.

As Project Scientist, Zeljko has taken primary responsibility for ensuring that the design and construction of the LSST system will be optimized for its scientific mission. In this capacity, he has chaired the Project Science Team, and played a major role in both internal and external reviews of the project. Zeljko brings a wealth of expertise and experience in survey astronomy in a variety of fields ranging from solar system science to studies of the structure of the Milky Way and cosmology.

 

Financial support for LSST 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 LSST 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 LSST camera 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 LSST in its Operations phase. They will also provide support for scientific research with LSST data.
