$> whois mrhanlon
Hi, I'm Matt! I'm a software developer living in Austin. I develop web applications for scientists to help them be more productive in their science. Whether it's data management, point-and-click access to computational resources, or the more mundane, I help to make sure scientists and researchers can focus more time and effort on their science, and not the technology that has become inextricable from large-scale, computationally- or data-intensive science.
