de Teodoro Pilar - 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.

Pilar de Teodoro
European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
Pilar de Teodoro studied Applied Physics at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid and at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. After returning to Spain from Denmark, she joined Oracle Iberica to become a consultant in several projects in the technology area. More than 8 years later, in 2006, she joined the Gaia team at ESAC in the role of Database Administrator. Pilar works mainly with Oracle databases but she is also very interested in other options. She aims to get the best configuration which gives the best performance for the different databases needed in the Gaia data processing and in the final main database release.
Pilar is part of the Gaia database group and a member of CU1 and CU3. She is based at ESAC, Madrid, Spain. She enjoys working in this environment which is more closely related to her physics background.
