Cannizzaro Giacomo - 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.

Giacomo Cannizzaro is a PhD student at SRON in Utrecht (The Netherlands). The main subject of his research are Tidal Disruption Events (TDEs).
He graduated in Physics and Astrophysics at the Sapienza University in Rome, Italy - where he was born - with a thesis on the study of magnetars.
For Gaia he will assess the number of white dwarf TDEs that should be detected with Gaia. His scientific interests include compact objects and transient events.
In his free time he enjoys mountain sports and reading.
