Margaret Meixner is the Principal Investigator of the SAGE project. She is an Associate Astronomer at Space Telescope Science Institute where she supports the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) project. She is a member of the science team for Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) on JWST. Her main scientific interest is circumstellar matter found in the youngest, forming stars and the oldest, dying stars. She also has a long standing interest in building infrared instrumentation. She will use the SAGE data to study the nature of star formation in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and the process of mass loss return by the evolved, dying stellar population to the interstellar medium of the LMC.

Brian Babler is an Associate Researcher at the University of Wisconsin. He helped develop the Wisconsin IRAC pipeline, and established himself as the resident stellar photometry expert. He helps with data processing, trouble-shooting, and providing quality assurance on the data products. Brian is also a member of the GLIMPSE team.

Jean-Philippe Bernard is a full time research scientist for CNRS at CESR in Toulouse, France. His main interest concerns the properties of the interstellar medium, IR to millimeter dust emission and polarization properties, statistical studies of star formation and observational cosmology, in particular the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich effect on galaxy clusters and cosmology using the Cosmic Microwave Background. He has been working on several satellite and balloon-borne missions such as ISO, XMM, Pronaos and Archeops. He is now actively involved in the preparation of the data processing for Planck and is the Prime Investigator of the PILOT balloon experiment.

Robert Blum is an Associate Astronomer at Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory in La Serena, Chile. Apart from SAGE (circumstellar mass-loss and chemical enrichment), Blum is engaged in stellar population studies of the Galactic center and studies of the formation of massive stars in the inner Galaxy. Blum is a member of the NOAO Gemini Science Center which provides the US community interface to the Gemini telescopes and is also heavily involved in the site testing effort for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) in Northern Chile.

Caroline Bot is a postdoctoral fellow from CNES, working at the Strasbourg observatory in France. Her main research interest is the properties of the interstellar medium, and in particular of dust grains. Her work relies mainly on analyzing infrared to millimeter emission from dust in nearby galaxies and in particular in various regions of the Small Magellanic Cloud.

Ed Churchwell is the leader of the GLIMPSE I & II teams who are imaging the inner 2/3rds of the Galaxy (+&- 0 to 65 degrees on either side of the galactic center in all four IRAC bands). My main scientific interests are the physics of massive star formation and the impact a massive star has on it‘s environment; the role of molecular clouds in star formation; and, large scale galactic structure as inferred from the distribution of stars at infrared wavelengths. The SAGE LMC project offers an array of opportunities for progress in all these areas.

Martin Cohen is a Research Astronomer at UC-Berkeley working on the interstellar medium of the Galaxy and of the LMC. He specializes in the relationships between optical, mid-infrared, and radio images, particularly for planetary nebulae and HII regions. He has also invested 15 years in the establishment of absolute calibration stars for the optical-infrared range. This work underpins many space and airborne infrared missions, as well as selected instruments on large ground-based telescopes. He is a member of the Science Teams of the US "WISE" MidEx and Japan's "ASTRO-F", and of ESA's "SPIRE" Instrument Consortium for the Herschel mission.

Chad Engelbracht is an Assistant Astronomer at Steward Observatory, University of Arizona, where he is the MIPS Instrument Scientist and the MIPS lead on the SINGS legacy project. His service role on the SAGE team will be to lend his expertise to the data-reduction effort. His main scientific interests are in observational extragalactic astronomy. His work includes modeling of starburst galaxies and studying the nature of the ISM in nearby galaxies. His studies of star formation and metallicity effects on the ISM naturally led to an interest in the LMC, where he will explore how the trends in global properties he has measured in more distant galaxies vary spatially within a galaxy.

 

Jay A. Frogel is Special Assistant to the President of AURA, Bill Smith and Co-director of the Science, Discovery, and the Universe part of the College Park Scholars program at the Univ. of Maryland. His main research interests are the stellar populations of galaxies and their morphology. Frogel has published many papers on the stellar content of the Magellanic Clouds and their clusters as well the clusters and bulge of the Milky Way, M31, and M33. He also was the PI for the Ohio State University Survey of Bright Spiral Galaxies. His somewhat outdated webpage is http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~frogel/ - it has a link to the Galaxy Survey.
