Konkoly Observatory (Hungary)
Gábor Marton studied astronomy in Budapest, Hungary and graduated from Eötvös Loránd University in 2008. In 2014 he finished his PhD about the connection of large scales bubbles of the interstellar medium and the star formation processes.
Gábor has joined Gaia CU5 with the primary goal of improving the Gaia Science Alerts system. The main tasks involve improving the detection algorithms and classifying the sources via machine learning techniques.
Apart from Gaia, he was deeply involved in the ESA Herschel mission as a member of the PACS ICC, and leader of the Herschel/PACS Point Source Catalogue legacy project. His scientific interests include source classification with machine learning, analysis of the infrared extended emission and the connection between ISM complexity and star formation efficiency. He is also part of the EU-funded H2020 solar system project, Small Bodies Near And Far (SNBAF).
