Dell'Oro Aldo - 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. 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 papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

INAF-Osservatorio Astrofisico di Arcetri, Firenze (Italy)
Aldo Dell'Oro graduated in Physics at University of Pisa, and he got his PhD in Astronomy in 2000. Since end of 2001 he is an astronomer at the
His main field of research concerns the study of the physics and evolution of the minor bodies of the Solar System, and in particular of the asteroids, focusing mainly on their collisional evolution and dynamical asteroid families.
He joined the Gaia project in 2002 as member of the Solar System Working Group, and then in DPAC as Development Unit leader of CU4-DU453 "CCD processing", developing and maintaining the software module for the processing of the CCD signals of Solar System objects in the astrometric focal plane of Gaia.
