Babusiaux Carine - 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.

Carine Babusiaux is a member of the Gaia Science Team since January 2006. Carine completed her PhD (in 2003) on "Photometric Studies of the Milky Way" at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, where she was also actively involved in the detailed simulations of the Gaia instrument response, and in the details of the on-board detection. Since 2001 she has been coordinating and managing the Gaia GIBIS simulator. GIBIS is a pixel-level simulator of the Gaia mission intended to simulate how the Gaia instruments will observe the sky, using realistic simulations of the astronomical sources and of the instrumental properties. It is a branch of the global Gaia Simulator (GaiaSimu) under development within Gaia Coordination Unit 2: Data Simulations, of which Carine is a deputy manager.
