Philip Durbin

Phil joined the Dataverse team as a software developer in December 2012, but his history with IQSS goes back to 2006. With a degree in Psychology from the University of Dayton, he's happy to be working in an institute dedicated to social science, but proud to be part of the team that rewrote Dataverse to support additional scientific disciplines. Early exposure to open source as a philosophy and methodology lead Phil to pursue a career in computing, where he has spent many years enjoying (and sometimes fighting with) Linux and a variety of programming languages. His personal website is and he can often be found lurking in the #dataverse IRC channel on freenode.
