Thévenin Frédéric - 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 la Côte d'Azur
Frédéric Thévenin works at the Observatoire de la Cóte d'Azur, France. His main interest in astronomy is the stellar atmospheres and fundamental parameters of late-type stars, in particular the chemical element abundances of these objects. Most of Frédéric's research is devoted to the development of 3D NLTE atmospheres. More recently he has been involved in some asteroseismology studies and in the measurement of stellar radii with the VLTI.
From 2001 to 2005 Frédéric was a member of the Gaia Radial Velocity Spectrometer working group supporting scientific preparation of the mission. He is now involved in the development of the data analysis for spectroscopic processing (CU6) and for astrophysical parameters (CU8).
