Massari Davide - Gaia
Gaia was proposed in 1993 and since then, many people have been involved in the Gaia mission, whether at ESA, at industry side or at one of the institutes involved in the Gaia data processing. The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) is a collaboration which consists of around 450 scientists and engineers.
The list of Gaia contributors presented here should not be considered a complete representation of the entire consortium. A more complete list of Gaia contributors that were involved in the creation of the Gaia catalogues can be obtained from the author lists of the Gaia Collaboration papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Leiden University (The Netherlands)
Davide Massari obtained his PhD at the University of Bologna in 2014, and he is currently working as a postdoc at the Leiden University.
His main scientific interest is the study of resolved stellar populations, from globular clusters to Milky Way satellites. His research is particularly focused on stellar proper motion measurements from the combination of different data sets, from space-based to ground-based Adaptive-Optics images. He is also member of the science team of the MICADO collaboration, the future first-light imaging camera of the European Extremely Large Telescope.
Davide joined the WP945 of DPAC, where he contributes to validate the data of upcoming data releases.
