Nurmi Pasi - 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.

Pasi Nurmi is a researcher at the Tuorla Observatory in Finland. He is a member of the Double and Multiple Stars Working Group and the Photometry Working Group. Pasi has been working on the image data processing and in particular has developed an algorithm to combine several patches into one image.
Pasi's scientific interests also cover Gaia-related double star simulations, binary evolution and galaxy modelling. He plans to continue working in these areas.
He left Gaia in late 2006.
