Carry Benoit - 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.

IMCCE, Observatoire de Paris and Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur
Benoit Carry is an assistant astronomer working at the Institute for Celestial Mechanics and Ephemeris Computation (IMCCE) of the Observatoire de Paris and the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur. His main scientific interests are the small bodies of our solar system, linked to planet formation and the evolution of planetary systems.
Benoit joined CU4 in January 2013, working on the short term pipeline. He designed the tools (DU459) to disseminate call-for-observation alerts for newly discovered solar system objects by Gaia to a network of ground-based observers (called Gaia-FUN-SSO, organised by W. Thuillot).
