Garralda Nora - 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 and should not be considered as a list of currenly active people on the Gaia mission. 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 overview papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here, for the full Gaia Data Release 3 see here, for Gaia Focused Product Release see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Universitat de Barcelona
Nora joined the Gaia Team at the UB in June 2011. Since then she has been working in CU3 as a software developer and testing engineer for the IDT and IDA/IDV projects, focusing on the revision, implementation and validation of scientific algorithms but also supporting framework and technical issues.
Nora obtained her B.Sc Degree in Telecommunications Engineering in 2008 from the Universidad Pública de Navarra, and her M.Sc degree in Information and Communication Technologies in 2011 from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. She did her Master Thesis research project about nanocommunication networks with the N3Cat group (NaNoNetworking center in Catalonia).
Her work on the Gaia mission represents her first steps into astronomy and now she's enthusiastic about this topic.
Nora left the Gaia mission in 2017.
