Montegriffo Paolo - 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.

Paolo Montegriffo graduated in Astronomy in the Bologna University in 1994; between 1998 and 2004 he worked as a technical/scientific collaborator and since 2005 as a researcher astronomer at the INAF-Astronomical Observatory of Bologna. His main interests are: globular clusters, crowded field photometry, data analysis, software development.
He has been involved as software developer into ESO-VLT VIMOS project, in Ital-FLAMES consortium and in Giano project.
As a member of the CU5 - DU14, he is involved in the definition of the absolute calibration model of the G-band and BP/RP spectra and in the development of the corresponding algorithms to be implemented in the CU5 photometric pipeline.
He always rides a bicycle for a better world.
