Busso Giorgia - 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.

Giorgia Busso obtained her PhD at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität in Kiel (Germany) in 2007 with a thesis about the hot subdwarf stars in the Galactic Bulge. She started to work on Gaia during her first PostDoc at the Observatory of Teramo in Italy. Now she is a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands, where she collaborates with Anthony Brown.
Giorgia is a member of DU11 in CU5 and her work is focused mainly on the development of the methods and algorithms for the processing of the dispersed images from BP/RP.
Her scientific interests are Horizontal Branch stars, globular clusters, Galactic bulge and UV excess in elliptical galaxies and bulge of spirals.
