Laborie Anouk - 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.

Anouk Laborie is leading the team at EADS Astrium in charge of the Gaia "CCD and Focal Plane Technology Demonstrators". This Gaia Technology Development Activity mainly encompasses the development of CCDs and associated proximity electronics, an extensive radiation testing programme, and the development of two ASTRO focal plane demonstrators dedicated to the validation of electro-optical performances and thermo-mechanical design respectively.
Since 1990, Anouk Laborie has been involved in various Earth Observation & Science programmes: Helios (Stellar Measurement Unit), Envisat (GOMOS), Meteosat Second Generation (SEVIRI) and ROCSAT 2 for the development of the Remote Sensing Instrument focal plane.
