Dr. Amanda Bauer Appointed Interim Deputy Director for LSST Operations

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

Dear Colleagues:

I am delighted to announce that Dr. Amanda Bauer has agreed to take on the role of Interim Deputy Director for LSST Operations, effective immediately.

Amanda has been Head of Education and Public Outreach (EPO) for the LSST Construction project since 2017. As a member of the LSST management team she has demonstrated leadership, ability to organize and build teams, and deliver on project milestones. This fiscal year she will help to support (among other things) the key activity of delivering a successful LSST full survey operations proposal (to be submitted to a joint agency review in April, 2020).

Amanda is committing 25% of her time to this new role while maintaining her focus on the LSST EPO Project effort.

I am looking forward to having Amanda's considerable strengths brought to bear on the challenges facing the Operations team this year. I hope you will all welcome her into this new position.

Sincerely,
Robert Blum
Acting Director for LSST Operations
