Butkevich Alexey - 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.

Lohrmann Observatory, Dresden
Alexey Butkevich is a member of Gaia CU3 (Core Processing) where he works on various aspects of the astrometric processing of the Gaia data mainly focusing on the velocity determination from Gaia's own observations. Space astrometry and its various applications have been his main interests in astronomy ever since 1995, when he joined the Struve space astrometry project in Pulkovo Observatory, Saint-Petersburg. There he led the scientific and programming implementation of the data reduction. Since 2006 Alexey has been working at the Lohrmann Observatory, Dresden, with Sergei Klioner.
