Dr. Indrajeet Patil joins esqLABS

From September 1, 2021, on Dr. Indrajeet Patil, a physicist and senior research software developer with a PhD from the International School for Advanced Studies (Italy) is reinforcing esqLABS.



Dr. Indrajeet Patil joins esqLABS

Indra is a physicist-turned-psychologist-turned-software developer passionate about applying his programming knowledge to build robust and user-friendly software applications.

Before joining esqLABS, he developed multiple R packages (like ggstatsplot, statsExpressions, etc.) for statistical analysis and data visualization. Additionally, as a core member of the ‘easystats’ team, he co-developed a few additional packages for tidying, modifying, and visualizing regression model objects.

Indra completed a Master’s degree in Physics at the University of Pune (India) and received his Ph.D. title in Neuroscience from the International School for Advanced Studies (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. Giorgia Silani. He then did postdoctoral research in Social Psychology: first at Harvard University (USA) with Prof. Mina Cikara and Prof. Fiery Cushman, and then at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (Germany) with Prof. Iyad Rahwan.
