Joey Hess

Independent Guru
Joey's own introduction "I'm Joey Hess and I write programs" conceals his paramount role in establishing the core of the Debian distribution (debhelper, debian-installer, debconf, pristine-tar, etc.) and his work on variety of other software projects, such as git-annex which we rely upon in the DataLad project.

Benjamin Poldrack

University of Magdeburg, Germany
Works on the DataLad project.

Affiliated Faculty

Jeremy Rothman Manning

Assistant Professor
Jeremy is an Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth and directs the Contextual Dynamics Lab. He enjoys thinking about brains, non-brain brain-related things (e.g. zombies), computers, annoying-to-solve puzzles, and cats.

Matthijs (Matt) van der Meer

Assistant Professor
Matt is an Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth. His lab studies how ensembles of neurons across multiple brain areas organize experience in the service of adaptive behavior.

Collaborators in training

Oliver Contier

University of Magdeburg, Germany
Masters student in Psychology / Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Magdeburg. Oliver started his enthusiasm for open science as an intern at Dartmouth College where he enjoyed a summer full of fMRI data analysis. His current goal is to provide his University with a fully reproducible Masters thesis. Naturally, the perfect way to do it is by using - and contributing to - open software frameworks.


Jason Gors

Pythonista and heavy user of open-source offerings. Works on the DataLad project.

Gergana Alteva

Barnard College, Columbia Unviersity
A CS undergraduate from Columbia, worked on the DataLad project as a developer intern at Dartmouth in the summer of 2016. "This internship not only made me a contributor to a cool open source project, but through it I gained valuable experience in software development teamwork and tools (Git/GitHub, Travis, etc) which later made academic presentation of the same materials actually make sense and gave me a leg up in my courses. It was an incredible opportunity to work with and learn from such accomplished developers."
