Marrese Paola - 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.

Paola M. Marrese completed her PhD in 2004 at the Astronomy Department of Padova University. During her PhD she worked on the assessment of the Gaia performances on double-lined eclipsing binaries and the accuracy achievable on the determination of the fundamental stellar parameters.
From 2005 to 2009 she was a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands where she worked, in collaboration with Anthony Brown, on the photometric data analysis and reduction.
She is now a postdoctoral fellow at ASDC (ASI Science Data Center) where she works on the development of the methods and algorithms for the processing of the dispersed images from BP/RP, in particular crowding evaluation, SSCs determination and background (both instrumental and astrophysical) modellization and subtraction.
She is a member of the Photometry Coordination Unit (CU5).
