Frémat Yves - 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.

Yves Frémat obtained his PhD in 1999 at the University of Mons. His main scientific interests are related to the study of B-type emission line stars, of delta Scuti stars and of binary stars. He held a Marie Curie postdoc fellowship for 2 years at the Observatoire de Paris/Meudon (GEPI laboratory) and, from 2003 to 2006, was a postdoc at the Royal Observatory of Belgium where he obtained a staff position in 2007. Yves's involvement in the Gaia mission really started in 2005 as a core member of the RVS working group. Since 2006, he is a member of CU6 and CU8 and is presently contributing to the software development of the GWP-S-835 (Extended Stellar Parametrizer) and GWP-S-650 (Single Transit Analysis) work packages.
