Lead by David Mateo, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, EPD, SUTD.

Brought to you by SUTD Postdoc Society & DManD Centre

Research is becoming increasingly dependent on computer-based skills and tools, and researchers are expected to harness these tools in their work. This series will create a platform for the SUTD research community to share and learn these skills, and we invite all researchers (including faculty, postdocs, PhD students, RA’s and undergraduates) to get involved.

The second session in the Digital Research Tools will be “Plotting with Python & Matplotlib ”. We will discuss how to use Python/matplotlib to generate camera-ready plots and figures for scientific publications.

Python’s versatility and large community of developers have made it a very attractive and powerful tool for any kind of digital workflow. That includes plotting, a critical skill to communicate the results of your research. In this session we will show how to use the widely adopted matplotlib module to generate high quality, clear, and effective images and how to automate the tedious process of styling them. 

To get the most out of this workshop, please bring along your laptop with a working installation of Python and matplotlib. Basic knowledge of Python is strongly recommended.

If unsure about how to obtain Python and the matplotlib module, install Anaconda from here:


Lunch will be provided. 🙂 Shh…you can let me know if you have any special dietary.
