Livanou Evdokia - 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 and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA)
Evdokia has obtained her PhD from National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA) under the supervision of Mary Kontizas. Her primary degree is in Mathematics and has a Master degree in Astrophysics also from UOA.
Evdokia's PhD, entitled "Large scale star formation in the Magellanic Clouds (MCs) and its impact on their synthetic spectra (Implementation for Gaia)", dealt with the problems of star formation, structure and evolution of these nearby galaxies through multiwavelength data. The effect of star formation on the synthetic spectra of the MCs was also investigated.
Since 2004 she has been working with the ATHINOGAIA group in Athens, involved in the production of an extended library of synthetic spectra of galaxies, and the development of the Unresolved Galaxy Classifier (UGC) code, being a member of CU8 and JStuff code for CU2.
