Beck Mathias - 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.

Mathias graduated in physics in 1993 at the University of Heidelberg. He obtained his PhD in 1996 at the Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics. During his studies Mathias spent almost five years at CERN working on various hard- and software related aspects of two experiments in high energy particle physics.
Mathias left Gaia in 2018.
