New VAO Project Scientist: Dr. Joseph Lazio

Dr. Joseph Lazio has joined the VAO team as Project Scientist.  Joe has recently moved to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a Principal Research Scientist following a long tenure as a Radio Astronomer at the Naval  Research Laboratory in Washington, DC.  He has also served as the Project Scientist for the Square Kilometer Array.  Joe’s research interests are diverse and multi-wavelength, making him an excellent addition to the VAO.

The VAO Team thanks Dave De Young (NOAO) for many years of dedicated service to the NVO and VAO as Project Scientist. Dave put a lot of sincere effort into the NVO and VAO and was unflagging and highly  effective in his emphasis on setting VO priorities based on science needs. We wish Dave all the best in his future endeavors.
