Daniel is our boss. A computer engineer with a PhD in parallel genetic programming on volunteer desktop grids. He is also a senior researcher at the Citizen Cyberlab and an alumni of the Shuttleworth Foundation.
Marvin is a computer engineer and system administrator for GNU/Linux systems. He is our senior developer, so that means he develops PYBOSSA software and manages the infrastructure of Crowdcrafting. In other words, this wouldn't be up without him.
