THE E-ELT PROJECT SCIENCE TEAM
In January 2012 ESO invited the astronomical community to nominate candidates for the E-ELT Project Science Team by the end of March 2012. In response to this call more than 80 nominations were received, all of strong candidates. The project is very grateful for this overwhelming response and the great interest of the community in helping to steer the project.
From these nominations the E-ELT Programme Scientist (Roberto Gilmozzi) and the ESO Director General have appointed the following PST members for a renewable term of 3 years:
|Giuseppe Bono (Chair)||Rome|
|Jordi Cepa||La Laguna and IAC, Tenerife|
|Thérèse Encrenaz||Paris Observatory|
|Roland Gredel||MPIA Heidelberg|
|Tom Herbst||MPIA Heidelberg|
|Isobel Hook||Oxford / Rome|
|Carlos Martins||CAUP, Porto|
|Roberto Ragazzoni||Padova Observatory|
In addition to the above the E-ELT project scientist (Jason Spyromilio) and the E-ELT instrument scientist (Suzanne Ramsay) are ex-officio members. In the future the PST will be joined by the Principal Investigators of Council approved E-ELT instrument projects.
