Zwitter Tomaž - 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.

University of Ljubljana
Tomaz leads an active group in the Physics Department of the University of Ljubljana, where he is associate professor for astronomy, involved in the preparatory studies of the radial velocity spectrometer for Gaia. He and his group work closely with Ulisse Munari in Padova, and are involved in simulations and optimisation of the instrumental properties, and in extracting astrophysical information from the Gaia spectra, also in the presence of crowding. A member of the Gaia radial velocity working group, he is particularly interested in the physics of eclipsing binaries, and is also involved in the radial velocity consortium, led by Mark Cropper at MSSL, developing plans for the instrument definition.
