Roegiers Tineke - 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 and should not be considered as a list of currenly active people on the Gaia mission. 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 overview papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here, for the full Gaia Data Release 3 see here, for Gaia Focused Product Release see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Tineke started working at ESTEC in 2016 as part of the Gaia Project Scientist Team. As project information coordinator she provides support to the Gaia scientific user community and the Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium and helps with the coordination of data release preparations.
She graduated as a space engineer from the Technical University of Delft (The Netherlands) with a thesis on the low-thrust trajectory estimation using a shape-based method. She moved to the United States where she worked as science planner for the NASA Swift satellite mission. At the Swift mission control centre in State College, she was involved in the day-to-day activities of the science operations team.
In her spare time Tineke likes to travel and meet up with friends. She also enjoys campfires, cooking large dinners or going to the theater.
