Tanga 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.

His main scientific interests are in the area of formation and evolution of planetary systems. He is a member of the Solar System, Planetary Systems, and Simulations working groups. Paolo has contributed to the simulations of lightcurves of asteroids, to blind testing of data inversion procedures and to the study of the observability of the natural satellites of Solar System bodies. He loves hiking on the Alps and observing the night sky from his backyard.
