Observatoire de Paris-Meudon
Carine Babusiaux is a member of the Gaia Science Team since January 2006. Carine completed her PhD (in 2003) on "Photometric Studies of the Milky Way" at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, where she was also actively involved in the detailed simulations of the Gaia instrument response, and in the details of the on-board detection. Since 2001 she has been coordinating and managing the Gaia GIBIS simulator. GIBIS is a pixel-level simulator of the Gaia mission intended to simulate how the Gaia instruments will observe the sky, using realistic simulations of the astronomical sources and of the instrumental properties. It is a branch of the global Gaia Simulator (GaiaSimu) under development within Gaia Coordination Unit 2: Data Simulations, of which Carine is a deputy manager.
