Patrick Scheibe

Research Scientist, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences

Areas: Data Analytics, Programming, Software Engineering

Patrick Scheibe boasts a dynamic and illustrious career journey in academia and industry. He spent over a decade at Leipzig University, where he played a pivotal role in leading an image and data processing unit, enabling researchers to quantify medical and biological experiments easily. During his PhD studies, he took a deep dive into the intricacies of the human fovea, extensively utilizing Wolfram Language to model and quantify this crucial eye region from optical coherence tomography scans. Subsequently, Patrick’s expertise took him to the neurophysics department at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, where he continues to work on data processing for quantitative MRIs.

Patrick is a highly versatile professional with a wide range of expertise beyond academia. He has worked as a consultant using Mathematica on various projects focused on simulations, modeling and data analyses in diverse domains for companies like Daimler, Procter & Gamble and Dow Chemical. Patrick has been developing and maintaining the Wolfram Language integration for JetBrains IDEs since 2012. His exceptional skills and expertise have led him to join the IntelliJ Platform SDK team at JetBrains. In addition, Patrick has developed several syntax highlighters for Wolfram Language, one of which has been used on the official Mathematica Stack Exchange site, where he is an enthusiastic moderator and member.
