The GPIES team is led by the Principal Investigator Bruce Macintosh assisted by several Lead co-Investigators including James R. Graham, Travis Barman, Rene Doyon, Daniel Fabrycky, Michael Fitzgerald, Paul Kalas, Quinn Konopacky, Franck Marchis, Mark Marley, Christian Marois,Jennifer Patience, Marshall Perrin, Ben Oppenheimer and Inseok Song. The entire team is composed of ~50 investigators, including several postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, from universities and research centers located in the U.S.A., U.K., Canada, Australia, Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
The team meets regularly through the GPIES Science meetings whose first session was organized at the SETI Institute on October 11-13 2011, and the second one at the University of Toronto on June 13-14 2012. These meeting give an opportunity to the team to discuss the progress on the integration of instrument, design the observing campaign, organize the data processing and analysis pipeline, discuss the latest results in the field of exoplanets.
The picture below shows the attendees at the first GPIES Science Workshop in June 2011. All members of the GPIES team have read and agree to abide by the policies set forth in the Gemini Project Policies Document. We committed to releasing fully processed images, including speckle suppression by our standard pipeline, in incremental releases approximately 18 months after the campaign begins.
