University of Barcelona
Xavier Luri is assistant professor at the University of Barcelona where he teaches physics, astronomy and mathematics. He participated in the scientific exploitation of the Hipparcos data and is involved in Gaia since 1998. He is presently a member of the DPAC executive and manager of the DPAC Coordination Unit 2 (data simulations). Other areas of work include the design of small satellites for Earth observation and statistical methods in astronomy.
Besides science, his main interests are computers, philosophy and sport (not necessarily in that order), but being somewhat eclectic, he does not exclude any intellectually challenging activity.
