Marie Jonas - 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.

Jonas Marie graduated in the field of Space Science and Technology at the University of Würzburg and Luleå. He completed two traineeships in the Cluster and Mars Express Flight Control Teams at ESOC before joining the Gaia Flight Control Team for ESA's Young Graduate Traineeship Programme where he developed AOCS and payload-related data visualisation tools.
Beginning of 2013, Jonas became backup AOCS Spacecraft Operations Engineer for Gaia and is looking forward to taking part in the launch and commissioning activities.
In his spare time, Jonas enjoys hiking, running, and playing the piano.
