Dae-Won Kim - 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.

Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie,
Kim received his PhD in 2012 at the Department of Astronomy, Yonsei University, South Korea. During his 5 year PhD period, he had been affiliated as a predoc at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics to study time series analysis and QSO classification using machine learning.
He recently joined the Gaia CU8 group as a postdoc at MPIA, Heidelberg, and works for the classification of astronomical objects using machine learning algorithms.
His research interests are massive astronomical database analysis, source classification using machine learning, and time series analysis. Especially, he has a big interest in QSO variability.
