Philip Durbin

Phil joined the Dataverse Network (DVN) team as a software developer in December 2012, but his history with IQSS goes back to 2006. A fan of all sorts of data, he loves that is the DVN's home on the web. With a degree in Psychology (from the University of Dayton), he's somewhat content with the DVN's current emphasis on social science data, but he's pleased to see the launch of to store data for astronomers and wonders what the future holds.  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.  His personal website is and he can also be found at
