Panuzzo Pasquale - 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.

Observatoire de Paris (GEPI)
Pasquale Panuzzo works at the Observatoire de Paris (GEPI) in Meudon. He graduated from Padova University (Italy), and in 2003 he got a PhD in Astrophysics at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, with a thesis on dust attenuation and nebular emission in star forming galaxies.
From 2003 to 2012 Pasquale worked for the ESA Herschel mission at Imperial College (UK), the Astronomical Observatory of Padova (Italy) and the Service d'Astrophysique of the CEA in Saclay (France). During his participation as Associate Scientist in the SPIRE Instrument Control Center, he contributed to various aspects of the project: development of code for the SPIRE pipeline, management of the development team, commissioning activities and characterization of the SPIRE instrument.
Pasquale has done scientific research on several subjects in astrophysics, for example the spectro-photometric models of dusty galaxies and the study of early type galaxies.
He also participated in several Herschel observational programmes in various domains, ranging from the Solar System to nearby galaxies and cosmological surveys.
Pasquale joined the Gaia project in January 2013. He is the CU6 Payload Expert coordinator.
