Voss Holger - 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.

University of Barcelona
Holger Voss has obtained his PhD in 2006 at the Technical University of Berlin on studies supporting the development of the ground-based exoplanetary search system BEST. This system of the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) was introduced as a ground-based system undertaking supplemental photometric observations for the CoRoT satellite mission. Furthermore Holger has supported the implementation of another transit search system, TEST, at the Thuringia State Observatory, Tautenburg, Germany.
In late 2006 he joined the CU5 team at the University of Barcelona, working mainly on studies about aspects of the internal photometric calibration and the selection of standard stars for Gaia.
His scientific interests are focused at the transit detection of exoplanets and brown dwarfs.
Personal interests apart from his work are model rocketry, music and sports.
