Reylé Céline - 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.

Observatoire de Besançon
Céline Reylé received her PhD from Paris University in 1998 with a thesis on gaseous emissions from comets. She is now an astronomer in Besançon Observatory, working on the structure and history of the Milky Way. She is a member of the Photometry, Simulation and Classification Working Groups. Céline is using the Besançon model of the Galaxy to show that bulge stars will be observable with Gaia and therefore they should not be neglected in the definition of the Photometric System. She is also involved in the Gaia Simulator, as the Besançon team is working on incorporating the Besançon model of the Galaxy into the simulator.
