Task: Gaia CU3/DPCB


I’m the IDU Cross Match and QA Manager at the Data Processing Centre Barcelona(DPCB) for the ESA Gaia Mission. In this role I develop part of the systems and architecture responsible for processing the immense data volume that will be collected for 1 billion stars. Our most exciting challenge is to process, manage and extract scientific results from the Petabyte of data that will be acquired by Gaia using the BSC Mare Nostrum supercomputer.

I have a BSc in Telecommunications Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. I also have a degree in Business and Economics from the University of Barcelona.
