Salim Ansari was closely involved with Gaia activities from 2001 to 2005 during which time he was ESA's technical officer for the GDAAS data analysis prototype study (2001-04). This involved close monitoring and coordination of the activities of GMV and the University of Barcelona, running of the configuration control board, supervision of the testing programme, and the integration and interface of the community's software algorithms through the Gaia Algorithm and Tracking Tool set up at ESTEC. Salim's Gaia interests were primarily in the areas of data processing, data mining, and data visualisation. The 'Interactive Books of Gaia' on the web sites were his brainchild.
He left Gaia in early 2006.
