Matthew Brett

University of Birmingham, UK
Neurologist, neuroimaging methods guru, early proponent of reproducible practice and in-depth understanding of the used analysis methodologies, lead of Neuroimaging in Python community and some of its popular software (NiPy and NiBabel) projects and infrastructural solutions, such as Nibotmi which we are contributing to.

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

Luke Chang

Assistant Professor
Luke is an Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth and directs the Computational Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab. His lab develops tools to study the computational processes underlying emotions and social interactions and their neurobiological substrates.

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

Adina Wagner

University of Magdeburg, Germany
Despatched Masters / prospective Ph.D. student from Michael Hanke's Psychoinformatics Lab. Looks like a Clinical Psychologist on paper, but strives for an open-science conducting, open-software developing secret identity thanks to inspirational influences from Michael, Yarik, Benjamin, and many more.

Chris Cheng

Dartmouth College
Dartmouth undergrad with a passion for learning more about neuroimaging, open science, and reproducible neuroscience. One of NiBabel's active contributors. Editor of select ReproNim training materials. Currently working to model relationship between fMRI QA metrics and human scan data under Yarik's wise mentorship.


Jason Gors

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

Gergana Alteva

Barnard College, Columbia University
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."

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.

Matteo Visconti di Oleggio Castello

UC Berkeley, CA
Formerly a Ph.D. student in Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth, holds a M.Sc. in Cognitive Science from the University of Trento, Italy and a degree in Mathematics from the University of Torino, Italy. Co-developer of the DueCredit project.

Samuel Nastase

Princeton, NJ
Formerly a Ph.D. student in Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth. Avid PyMVPA user and NeuroDebian exhibitor at recent SfN and OHBM conferences.
