Balagué Jordán Yolanda - 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.

Yolanda, a telecommunications engineer from Barcelona, came to ESTEC for 1 year starting in July 2002 as an ESA Young Graduate Trainee assigned to Gaia. Since her arrival she has primarily concentrated on developing the Gaia Algorithm Tracking Tool (GATT). This Cold-Fusion-based tool is used by the Gaia scientific community to upload and manage algorithm source code, routines and other relevant documentation used in the Gaia Data Access and Analysis Study Group. In addition to improving and maintaining GATT, Yolanda is now turning her attention towards investigating the feasibility of using the GRID for Gaia.
Yolanda is no longer working for the Gaia mission.
