Gutiérrez Raúl - 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.

After obtaining his degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 2001, Raúl started working at the Spanish National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA). He designed and implemented scientific archives for ground-based telescopes and space astronomical missions as GTC or INTEGRAL-OMC, as well as astronomical software like the SED builder, VOSED.
Also, as technical leader of the Spanish Virtual Observatory (SVO), Raúl has been involved in Virtual Observatory projects as the IVOA (International Virtual Observatory Alliance) and EURO-VO.
