David Marc - 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 Antwerp
Marc David received his Ph.D. from the Free University of Brussels in 1979 with a dissertation in the field of transmission electron microscopy. In 1985 he reoriented his research towards stellar dynamics, in particular the dynamics of star forming regions, with a special interest in the measurement of radial velocities of early-type stars.
He joined the RVS working group in 2000 and is now a member of CU6-DU650 (the Single Transit Analysis team).
