Denby Mike - 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.

Mike is the Project Manager for the XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre and is based in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester. His current research interest is the statistical analysis of sources with spatially extended X-ray emission, which are present in the XMM-Newton public archive. Mike is a member of Gaia's On-ground and In-orbit Calibration Working Group. He is producing prototype software to investigate the pipeline processing of TDI format CCD data such as those which will be generated by Gaia.
Mike left Gaia in 2006.
