Activities
 Creator and developer of Pylidc  Pylidc is a software library for working with LIDC lung CT dataset. The library is built with Python and its associated scientific computing libraries and is freely available. https://github.com/pylidc/pylidc
 C++ and Fortran Reference Guides for Graduate Seminar  In collaboration with a fellow graduate student, Emacs Orgmode was used to create C++ and Fortran reference guides to be used in the Applied and Computational Mathematics computational seminar for first year graduate students at FSU. The guides are available under a Creative Commons license. http://notmatthancock.github.io/teaching/acmcomputingseminar/resources/langs/cpp/
 Participant in Capital One modeling competition  Our group created a neural network model for identifying fraudulent credit card transactions. This involved preprocessing tens of gigabytes of raw data to be placed into an SQL database, whereafter a GPUbased (using Theano) neural network was trained.
