Jasniewicz Gérard - 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.

Groupe de Recherche en Astronomie & Astrophysique du Languedoc (GRAAL)
Gérard Jasniewicz's scientific interests mostly concern chemical abundances of evolved stars (giant, AGB and post-AGB) in the galactic field and globular clusters, in order to test stellar evolutionary models. Gérard worked for many years at the Strasbourg Data Center (CDS), and is presently working at the Groupe de Recherche en Astronomie & Astrophysique du Languedoc (GRAAL), a research group affiliated to the CNRS and University of Montpellier (France). He joined the Gaia RVS Working group in 2004. Now, within the Gaia CU6: Spectroscopic Processing, he is in charge of the top level work package "Radial Velocity zero point" and he is also a member of the steering committee for CU6.
