Sinachopoulos Dimitris - 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.

National Observatory of Athens
Dimitris Sinachopoulos has a Senior Researcher position at the National Observatory of Athens. He is funded by the Greek Secretariat of Research and Technology via the ATHENOGAIA programme - a 250,000 Euro project which supports the participation of eight Greek scientists in Gaia activities until 2007. Dimitris's scientific interests in Gaia are focused on establishing the algorithms and software for the analysis of the astrometric and photometric data of Gaia bright stars, of visual double stars, and of very young and low mass binaries. He also studies how the astrometric and photometric properties can be obtained, extracted and calibrated from the broad- and medium-band instruments.
