Gracia Gonzalo - 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.

European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
I studied physics in Universidad Autonoma de Madrid and completed my PhD in Universidad de Santiago de Compostela in 1997. From 1992 to 2001 I worked in High Energy Physics research at CERN, in the experiments SMC and LHCb. Afterwards, until the end of 2008, I was in the IT consulting industry as project leader managing application development projects, mainly for mobile devices as Mobile Phones and PDAs.
I have joined DPAC in December 1st 2008 as project scheduler in the project office. My main responsibility in DPAC is to generate and track the master schedule of the consortium integrating data and milestones from all different sources. Besides that, and as member of the project office, I will assist the project coordinator in other PO tasks like preparation of ESA reviews, maintaining the consortium WBS and risk register, generate reports for DPACE and ESA...
