C. Michelle Olmstead (born 1969) is an American astronomer and computer scientist.[2]

She is credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 46 asteroids for the period between 1977 and 1990. She has also co-discovered 127P/Holt-Olmstead, a periodic comet. The minor planet 3287 Olmstead, a Mars-crosser asteroid discovered by astronomer Schelte J. Bus in 1981, was named in her honour.[2]

When Olmsead was an undergraduate at Northern Arizona University in the early 1990s, she participated in several asteroid astrometry programs and made measurements using the existing survey work.[2] Her lowest numbered discovery, , officially discovered at Palomar Observatory in 1978, and presumably taken on photographic plates by Tom Gehrels shortly after the last Palomar-Leiden Survey campaign, had its discovering astrometric observation published on 12 September 1992 (M.P.C. 20706).[3][4]
