Joliet Emmanuel - 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.

European Space Astronomy Centre
Emmanuel Joliet studied Space & Physics Engineering. He graduated at the Université de Liège in 1999 and started his PhD in Astronomy at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Emmanuel worked at the Instituto Astrofísico de Canarias and obtained his Masters degree in Astronomy in 2002 in Uruguay.
Since then, he has been working in multi-disciplinary international projects for Space and Aeronautical industries in Computer Science, software development, data visualisation, numerical and statistical techniques, and data processing analysis.
Before joining ESA, he worked in Madrid as a Software Engineer in European projects related to aircraft noise measurements and studies, modeling, and simulation of environmental impact noise software and aircraft noise certifications.
In 2006, he joined the Gaia Science Operations Centre team at ESAC in Madrid as System and Software Engineer and has been working in CU1 and CU3, mainly in AGIS and as Work Package leader of the Gaia Parameter DataBase with Uwe Lammers and Jos de Bruijne. He is also a Hierarchical Equal Area isoLatitude Pixelisation (HEALPix) Java committer with William O'Mullane.
More recently, Emmanuel became Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop, always related to his constant interest in big-data solutions, visualisation, web development, and mobile applications.
During his spare time and holidays, he enjoys going to the gym, reading about the latest technological gadgets (currently, the RaspberryPi!), going to the movies, and planning for new and exciting traveling destinations.
