Anglada-Escudé Guillem - 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.

University of Barcelona
Guillem Anglada-Escudé is a PhD student at the University of Barcelona under the supervision of Jordi Torra and co-advisor Sergei Klioner (from the Lohrmann Observatory, Dresden). For one of his first contributions to Gaia, Guillem was involved in the integration of the relativistic model for the simulation/reduction processes in a consistent way (in the context of the GDASS2 study). His PhD thesis is devoted to the study of some key aspects of Gaia observations from a relativistic point of view. These include the effect of the satellite rotation, a refined kinematic model for stellar sources in nonlinear motion, and the sensitivity of Gaia measurements to the relativistic parameters of light deflection by Solar System planets.
Guillem also devotes a small part of his research time to exoplanet detection techniques by means of timing eclipsing binaries.
In the non-academic world, Guillem was "Councillor of Culture, Citizen participation and Youth" in his home village city council (Ullastrell, a small village near Barcelona). He resigned this position in 2005 to focus on his PhD thesis.
More detailed information on his research and personal interests can be found in his web page.
Guillem is no longer working for the Gaia Mission.
