Fabricius Claus - 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.

University of Barcelona
Claus Fabricius worked for many years at the University of Copenhagen, initially taking part in the Carlsberg Meridian Circle project on La Palma, and later participating in the construction of the Tycho-1 and Tycho-2 catalogues. In 2002 he joined the Gaia data analysis prototype (GDAAS), that was being developed by GMV (Madrid) and the University of Barcelona.
Now based in Barcelona, he is involved in preparing the data analysis for Gaia, in particular in the aspects of the initial treatment of the observations, and in the calibration of the photometric data.
